The Herald
Dark hues characterize The Herald, a mixed-voice song brought out by Elkin, about a ‘grim old king’ going to his death, having ‘won a rich kingdom’, but now ‘in the sunset he was ebbing fast’. One wonders to what extent the world-weary composer, who had ruled the English musical kingdom some fifteen years earlier, was picturing himself in these words.
