My love's in Germanie
My love’s in Germanie is in fact a setting of a Scottish song from the collection Songs of the North to words by Hector MacNiel (1746–1818). Grainger’s setting dates from 13–23 March 1903. This arrangement remained in manuscript short score form until 1980 when David Tall prepared a performing edition. Nonetheless it has received scant attention until the present recording. It calls for seven soloists and an eight-part choir, and Grainger’s treatment of this well-known tune makes for one of his most unusual and searingly intense musical creations.
