This is an elegant funeral song intended to be sung by the minstrel 'Balthasar' in the play. Mandy Bishop performed the role in the play, so I have left open a range of vocal possibilities for concert performance.

Difficulty: Medium — Ideal for senior secondary, youth, tertiary, and professional singers
