Mantle of blue
Mantle of blue is a setting of the well-known poem by Padraic Colum. It is strongly atmospheric, and more interesting if less immediately attractive than the setting by Herbert Hughes published in 1915. In a radio interview the poet was asked about the subject of the poem—whether or not the child is supposed to be dying—he answered that when he wrote it it was intended to be a simple lullaby, but that now he was not so sure!
