5 Old English Popular Songs

Roger Quilter (1877-1953)

5 Old English Popular Songs

In his five settings of Old English Popular Songs, published in 1921 and later incorporated into a larger collection, The Arnold Book of Old Songs, Quilter extends his rhythmic and harmonic means. The fourth verse of ‘Barbara Allen’, with its surrounding interludes (especially the one after it), is probably the most impassioned music Quilter ever wrote: with the security of an old tune to help him keep control, he can show us feelings we should be foolish not to suspect in his music.
