Watching the Wheat
This is a wonderfully expressive setting of a Welsh love song, allowing ringers to concentrate on achieving a balanced, legato sound. It is a great piece for a community choir. "A young and foolish lad am I, I go where fancy leads me. I stand and watch the golden wheat another does the reaping. The wind blows colder day by day and you grow ever fairer. September come and I must go, will you not follow after?" These are the words to the beginning of the traditional tune.
