Sonnet 'When most I wink'
Bridge went to the Royal College of Music in 1896, studying violin and piano. In 1899 he started composition lessons with Stanford. Sonnet ‘When most I wink’, the first of Bridge’s songs to survive, was clearly written as a student, the words probably chosen by Stanford and with a revision of the final phrase pencilled into the manuscript, no doubt during a lesson. This revision is almost certainly by Stanford and not Bridge. The song already shows signs of the composer’s love of sliding chromatic modulation.
