Where she lies asleep

First line:
She sleeps so lightly, that in trembling fear
composer
April 1914
author of text

 
In 1914 Bridge appears to have come across the poems of Mary Coleridge, setting two of her poems in this year and another in 1917. Where she lies asleep deserves to be much better known, with a wonderful atmosphere of peace and tranquillity sustained throughout.

from notes by Michael Pilkington 1997
