Introduction
Love went a-riding really does show a new approach, the composer taking the poem by the scruff of the neck and producing an exciting show-piece requiring great ability on the part of both singer and pianist. It is not surprising that this is the composer’s best-known song, since once heard it can hardly be forgotten. It is not typical of Bridge’s work, and many of his songs, for instance the previous Mary Coleridge setting, might well be thought of higher artistic quality.
