soprano Janet Ross
pianist Lindsay Garritson
Little is currently know of the British composer Alma Goetz, but she experienced some measure of musical success in the early 20th century around London. This heavy-hearted song was published the same year as Debussy's opera Pelléas and Mélisande was premiered, both based on the symbolist play by Maeterlinck. This text, however was written in English by Ethel Clifford.
