for solo voice and oboe (or another melody instrument)A tender, deeply touching extended song which is within the scope of students. A Girl's Song to her Mother is a companion piece to Wings of the Grasses. Each piece recalls the open, high moorland of South Wales. In A Girl's Song to her Mother the voice is a younger person comforting an older one. In Wings of the Grasses the voice changes from that of a child to that of a reflective adult.
Hilary Tann (b.1947)
"It is a beautiful piece and a fine addition to the repertoire for voice and melody instrument." - NATS Journal of Singing (USA) Sept 03
