My sweetheart's like Venus

author of text

My sweetheart’s like Venus is the ninth of Twelve Welsh Folksongs, all with tunes conveyed to Holst in 1930 by a Mrs Herbert Jones of Gregynog, who assisted in the translations by Steuart Wilson. This is a brief, light and largely untroubled setting, simply yet meticulously harmonised.
