O Lord, what is man!

composer
arranger
Dirge; Sacred Melodies i, London, 1812

 
O Lord, what is man! is one of the many arrangements of Haydn made by his admirer, the Leicester stocking manufacturer and amateur musician William Gardiner. With a one-to-a-part accompaniment, Raphael’s ‘whale’ recitative from Haydn’s Creation becomes an intimate and intense meditation on death.
