Poems by A.E. Housman

A.E. Housman’s The Shropshire Lad is one of the most beloved collections of English poetry. Housman’s musings on the horrors of war, the alienation of youth, and the futility of love defined the collective consciousness of the English composers between the Wars.

This set of six songs featuring texts taken from Housman’s varied output (including but not limited to The Shropshire Lad) paints of a varied picture of life: here are the joys of life’s small miracles, the weight of its burdens, and the tragedies of its endings.

The set is available for high or medium voice in the following keys:
