Und über dich wohl streut der Wind
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Und über dich wohl streut der Wind was, like the Tischendorf Lied, a gift in July 1844 to a friend, the pianist Walter Cecil Macfarren, who taught for many years at the Royal Academy of Music and whose brother was the composer Sir George Alexander Macfarren. Each strophe of this miniature song begins and ends in quasi-philosophical resignation to the passing of Time, youth and dreams, but the increasing intensity of the interior tells of grief not yet banished.
