There's nae lark
The very early There’s nae lark dates from Barber’s seventeenth year. The text is one of A C Swinburne’s imitations of Scots border lyrics, and Barber crafts a lyrical melodic line in imitation of Scots folksong with its ardent upward leaps of a ninth or an octave. (His model could well have been the tune to which Robert Burns’s My Love is like a Red Red Rose is traditionally sung.)
