April is the next month, When early in the morn I saw the cheery farmer A-sowing of his corn.
The gallant teams come after
A-smoothing of the land.
I hope all things may prosper
Whate'er he takes in hand.

Conducted by the Composer
Constant Lambert's ' Summer's Last
Will and Testament' was written during the years 1932-5 and first performed at a BBC Symphony Concert in January, 1936. Although predominantly autumnal in mood, it runs through the cycle of the seasons. Lambert has called his work a ' Masque ' after the original Nashe play (1593) from which he has taken the words. Not only is the music a masterly piece of craftsmanship, but it contains some of the composer's most sensitive writing.
