In summertime on Bredon

author of text
A Shropshire Lad

Albert Edward Housman was a leading British poet of his time, as well as an eminent classical scholar. He was born near Bromsgrove in Worcestershire, and his poetry includes nostalgic evocations of the countryside near where he was brought up. ‘In Summertime on Bredon’, evoking the hill of that name, comes from the celebrated cycle A Shropshire Lad. The setting here is by Gerald Graham Peel, who composed over a hundred songs and made something of a speciality of Housman settings.
