High Voice, Piano
From Volume 5 of Britten's folksong arrangements. It was composed sometime before 23 April 1957, which is believed to be the date of the song's first performance by Britten and Pears (at the Mozartsaal Konzert in Vienna). The same song, in a different arrangement, was used by Britten in the score of the 1936 documentary film Around the Village Green.
