Lean out of the window
Head’s sole setting of James Joyce (1882–1941), Lean out of the window (1961) is the fifth poem in the poet’s collection Chamber Music. It is a relaxed song, with a graceful vocal line in which a recur­ring triplet rhythm is prominent, and piquant harmonic word-painting on the word ‘gloom’.
