Product details

Written 15.3.39 after we (Marcus Edwards and I) had spent a day at Audley, in the National Park, N.S.W., - calm, cloudy, with a slight autumnal feeling; - quiet, and by a shallow reach of the Hacking River, on which there was a little boating in progress. The 2nd theme (over the pedal point, D) suggests at first the ripple of oars. Though written while we were still engaged, I have since come to regard the more sonorous part of the climax as reminiscent of another "happy day" - our wedding day, hence the indication "bell-like".
It was chiefly the last nine bars which brought to my mind the last lines of Keats' sonnet, quoted above the music
