"Like so many before me, I found William Blake's 'Songs of Innocence' both beautiful and inspiring. These three settings require a well balanced two-part choir plus a confident solo voice which, experience tells me, most established children's choirs have within their ranks. This solo line is, generally, quite independent of the other voice parts — most notably in 'Little Lamb' where I have overlaid words from the Christian Eucharist: 'Lamb of God who takest away the sins of the world...' which provides a prayerful descant to Blake's paschal tribute. By using a solo harp I hope to create a 'magical' and child-like sound world within which children's voices can illuminate Blake's timeless poetry."John Frith
