Introduction
Diaphenia, composed in October 1912, is a lilting love song setting words by Henry Constable. Its provenance is the Edwardian ballad, suitable for domestic music-making, rather than the art song, nevertheless it is utterly charming with an easy-going accompaniment suggesting the plucked strings of a lute, and juicy inner chromatic parts which hint at the aching ardour of the suitor.
