Very short, pretty; rhythm is a bit tricky in bars 11 and 12.

This piece needs someone with a fairly high voice on the top line - the highest note is only an F, but the whole piece sits fairly high. The alto line is probably the most challenging otherwise: a few tricky rhythms, and an F-sharp that can throw people.

Sheet Music: 

At St John's, we were working from Cicilia's copy, which I think is from an older edition of the Lochac Songbook. This looks like a nicely-formatted edition.

It's also in the current Big Lochac Snogbook (pdf) (page 17).
