This setting of Stewart Farrar's poem "Dance, Lady, Dance" for solo oboe, horn, harp, SSA choir and strings is put up now in its incomplete state: some of the text has yet to be added to the vocal parts, though there are clues where these words should go a mixture of common sense and intuition will tell where), and phrasing as well as some articulation and dynamic marking is missing from many string parts. These will need adding in the event of a performance. Anyone so inclined to undertake the task after my death if it remains incomplete at that time has my full permission so to do.
Composition of "Dance, Lady, Dance", was a labour of love and was hidden for several years. As will practically all of my output there is a very symbolic undercurrent to all the music; the hidden letters and names/parts can be teased out fairly easily.
I would like to acknowledge thanks to the copyright holder of the lyrics, Janet Farrar, for permission to use this lovely text.
