My beloved spake

composer
published in 1938
author of text
Song of Solomon 2: 10-13

 
Much of Hadley's music is not performed today, although My beloved spake, which was published in 1938, has found a place in the Anglican church music repertoire. It has provision for orchestral, organ or piano accompaniments. Hadley revolves all twelve tones in the space of two bars at 'The fig tree putteth forth', before returning to safer harmonic territory for the final climax, after which the music and the words die away.

from notes by William McVicker 1990
