Some of the sincerest and most delicate compositions of this century were left by George Butterworth, who was killed in the war. Folk-song colours all his thought, and his music tells plainly that he had deep within him the rapture and peace of the English countryside. Come, My Own One is a Sussex folk-song - one among several that he collected and arranged.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord? is one of the most poignant of the religious songs of the American Negro. Though cast in a familiar idiom, the words of these have as their moving force a deep and simple piety.
