O that it were so!
O that it were so! has a magical opening section, and the composer’s substitution of ‘sometimes’ for the poet’s ‘often’ may well be considered an improvement. The rest of the song is in a more normal romantic style, but the song deserves to regain its one-time popularity.

from notes by Michael Pilkington 1997
