The composer has cleverly set the poem by William Blake. The piece opens with the flute joyfully piping. The choir enters as the voice of the piper. The piper encounters a child who requests PIPE A SONG ABOUT A LAMB— a unison treble choir becomes the voice of the child. And so the drama continues to unfold as the flute continues its merry tune throughout. Number one of a set of TWO BLAKE SONGS: LAUGHING SONG - SBMP 762

Piping down the valleys wild,
Piping songs of pleasant glee,
On a cloud I saw a child,
And he laughing said to me:
“Pipe a song about a lamb!”
So I piped with merry cheer.
“Piper, pipe that song again.”
So I piped: he wept to hear.
“Drop thy pipe, thy happy pipe;
Sing thy songs of happy cheer.”
So I sung the same again,
While he wept with joy to hear.
“Piper, sit thee down and write
In a book, that all may read.”
So he vanished from my sight,
And I plucked a hollow reed,
And I made a rural pen,
And I stained the water clear,
And I wrote my happy songs
Every child may joy to hear.
