About this work
Set for voice and piano, "Pippa Sings" was composed in June 1906, when CBR had been Director of Music at St John's College, Cambridge for five years.
The dedication for this short and charming work simply states "To G. W.", but we have not yet been able to identify the dedicatee.
The first three songs of Op.23 were originally published by Stainer & Bell and are still available, but this final song "Pippa Sings" (No.4) has never yet been published. However the song has recently been typeset by Andrew King, and we hope to publish the work during the course of 2019.
