As dew in Aprylle

First line:
I syng of a mayden
author of text
Sloane Manuscript, c1450

Peter Warlock’s pint-sized, gossamer-weighted As dew in Aprylle deserves to be much better known than it is. First published in 1924, much of its charm comes from the delicate chromaticism of the harmonisations, and the constantly changing metre—flitting mostly between five and four beats to a bar—which creates a smoothly flowing feel.
