Programme Note
Thea Musgrave Canta Canta (1997)
This short song is taken from A Cantata for a Summer’s Day written in 1954 while the composer was a student in Paris. The poems of the Cantata describe a summer’s day in all its moods, from pleasant sunshine to the memory of winter in the cool evening mist. The Cantata had its first performance at the Edinburgh International Festival of 1955.

The original song of this work is a setting of a poem by Maurice Lindsay. It describes the orange tiger lily burning bright in the hot summer sun.

This arrangement by the composer is dedicated to Victoria Soames.
