About the piece

“Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee Life and bid thee feed,
By the stream and o’er the mead.
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, wooly, bright.”

This intimate setting reflects the intimacy, delicacy and subtle strength of William Blake’s poem “The Lamb”. It is appropriate for performance by a two-part choir or two soloists. A piano version of the accompaniment is also available. Appropriate for use as a church anthem.
