Into her keeping is in a more tragic mode, as a man mourns the loss of his wife; the last verse has to be a repetition of the first, for the man has no more reason for living, and there is nowhere for him to go. The passion of the central section goes some way to express the greatness of his loss.

from notes by Michael Pilkington 1997
