From the Publisher

Edited by Julian Lloyd Webber. Julian Lloyd Webber writes: My father composed his four part song ‘The Moon’ in 1959 to words by W.H Davies. The text — as in so many of his word settings — equates nature with humanity: “Thy beauty haunts me, heart and soul”. Although ‘The Moon’ remained unperformed until his centenary year in 2014 he evidently felt strongly enough about it to create this miniature for string orchestra.” This set includes a full score plus a set of 10 parts: 3 x violin 1, 2 x violin 2, 2 x viola, 2 x cello, 1 x double bass. Additional separate parts are available from Clifton Edition individually, promptly and at little cost. This work has been recorded in a performance conducted by Julian Lloyd Webber, available from Naxos: No. 8.573250.
