[1917]
Da “The Old Huntsman”
Musica del compositore americano Harold Blumenfeld (1923-vivente?) da “War Lament”, composizione per coro basata sulle poesie di Sassoon (1970).
Music of whispering trees
Hushed by a broad-winged breeze
Where shaken water gleams;
And evening radiance falling
With reedy bird-notes calling.
O bear me safe through dark, you low-voiced streams.

I have no need to pray
That fear may pass away;
I scorn the growl and rumble of the fight
That summons me from cool
Silence of marsh and pool
And yellow lilies is landed in light
O river of stars and shadows, lead me through the night.
