QCHUBERT'S power of evoking a mood in a few bars of music is brought out time and again in his songs. Such a song as The Organ Man, for instance, is one of those subtle tone-pictures in which he makes us see a picture as vividly as he must have done when he was writing the music.
We stand with the poet, and watch the poor old hurdy-gurdy man, patiently turning the handle, rain or shine. 'Let us go together, you and I,' impetuously cries the poet. ' I will make the songs and you shall play them.'
In My Dwelling Place is no repose for the mind. We share the sadness of the speaker, who cries ' Wearying stream, restless wood, chill rock-all these are my home, and all are witness of my woes.'
