Morfydd Owen - The Refugee


An early Morfydd Owen piece for SATB choir and piano.

Peter Reynolds writes of it:

 "This short choral work for mixed choir and piano was completed in 1911, presumably towards the end of   Morfydd Owen’s period as a student at the University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire. It is a setting of words by Friedrich Schiller in Edward Bulwer Lytton’s translation. It is one of her least-known works, not listed in the published studies of her work and is still essentially a student work, albeit much more sophisticated than the earlier sonata. It falls into three sections: an initial moderato; a middle section in 6/8 and a slow closing section (Lento)."
