Description
The sustaining instrument part can be played by violin, clarinet etc.

In this setting of William Blake's words (from the preface to his book 'Milton' ca. 1804-08) the composer imagines the performers in a time before Britain was an Empire - in a landscape which, although it may be green, is also mountainous, overcast and cold enough for the air to become visible when breathing out.

The text is better known as 'Jersusalem' (And did those feet in ancient time)
