A song cycle sung by Keith Falkner (baritone)
Poems by Tennyson
1 I hate the dreadful hollow. 2 A voice by the sea. 3 She came to the village church. 4 0, let the solid ground. 5 Birds in the high Hall garden. 6 Maud has a garden of roses. 7 Go not, happy day. 8 I have led her home. 9 Come into the garden, Maud. 10 The fault is mine. 11 Dead, long dead. 12 Oh, that 't were possible! 13 My life has crept along
