Programme Note
Brian Elias Meet me in the Green Glen [song cycle] (2009)
Meet Me In The Green Glen
Song
Now Is Past
Love's Pain
Hesperus

The first of these songs for solo voice to poems by John Clare was written for the NMC Songbook, a CD collection of songs by a variety of British composers, which was released in April 2009. I wrote the remaining songs in March and April 2009, as I had always intended to make a group of songs to these poems.

The songs may be performed individually or as a set and by any voice. They may also be transposed as desired by the singer. When more than one song is performed the transposition should be by the same degree throughout.
