Six settings of poems by

James Reeves (1909–1978), chiefly known for his poetry and literature for children.

 

Certain themes recur in his poems, such as music, childhood, love and mortality, all of which are evident

in these settings, with their varying moods of yearning, nostalgia, uneasiness and passion.
