Description: My musical setting for one of A. E. Housman's poems. I've used the traditional Irish air O Arranmore. In the score, I've very slightly changed the original lyrics to fit the melody. Voice simulated by cello; the musical accompaniment is as an example of what might be done.
The lyrics: The New Mistress by A. E. Housman
