The winter it is past

author of text

The winter it is past is a 2014 setting of a short, bleak poem by Robert Burns (1759-1796). Written in 1788 it equates the passing of the seasons with the end of a love affair. The music uses a melodic language borrowed from folksong in a prevailing 5/4 meter.
