Album Notes
1. Marie for shame you lie abed too long
A sprightly number encouraging Marie to get out of bed and enjoy the day.
It is inspired by the poem "Marie vous estes paresseuse" by Ronsard as translated by my father:
Marie, for shame, you lie abed too long.
The gay lark to the sky has told its tale,
And the sweet prattle of the nightingale
Perched on the thorn pours forth a love-lorn song.

Arise! Let us go view the dewy land,
With handsome roses in their nascent flower,
And darling pinks, watered with loving care
And gentleness, at dusk, by your own hand.

But yesternight a solemn vow you made
To stir sooner than me, to wake and rise;
But Dawn's soft beauty sleep, a boon to maids

Entraps you still, prisons your lazy eyes.
There, let me kiss them both a hundred times,
To teach you what it is to rise betimes.

(c) Stanley S Solomons

2. Nocturne
This represents Marie going back to sleep! Possibly my most indulgent piece. Not much else to say, have a nice dream.

3. Camp David
This is a klezmer style piece and somewhat camp, inspired by a Yiddish folk song
where the girl thinks it's time to get married...

4. Blue Boar Blue
This is based on a poem by a friend who lived in Blue Boar quad (Christ Church Oxford)
and lamented the fact he had to stay in and study while he was actually looking forward
to taking his girlfriend out punting on the river.
"Today was a summery Saturday
a day for reading Rabelais
a day to laze your cares away
except the one that's here to stay
Today has been a symphony in green
a menthol flavoured dream
a menthol flavoured dream
The sky came right on cue
dressed in blue boar blue
and an Eton boater
Now the weather's being kind
There's thought of punting on my mind
there's thought of punting on my mind
but the punt was made for two
and the number two is you
I know you'll be here "soon enough"
but "soon enough" is never soon enough!
Got your visit all planned out
theatres picnics booked your room
and while I wait the summer turns to blue
Blue Boar Blue.
I know this is the way it's got to be
Until you're free to be with me,
until you're free to be with me
but it makes me sad it's true
it turns me Blue Boar Blue!
Blue Boar Blue!
(c) Mark Haviland

5. Changing moods at dusk
An alternating sequence of pensive 3/4 time and jolly 7/4 time, ending with the 3/4 as the thinker finally falls asleep.
The work is based on my earlier setting of Psalm 70 (Be pleased, O God, to deliver me) in which the psalmist moves from despair to hope.
Be pleased, O God, to deliver me!
O Lord, make haste to help me!
Let them be put to shame and confusion who seek my life!
Let them be turned back and brought to dishonour who desire my hurt!
Let them be appalled because of their shame who say, "Aha, Aha!"
May all who seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee!
May those who love thy salvation say evermore, "God is great!"
But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God!
Thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, do not tarry!
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost
As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be
World without end, Amen

6. The Park on Sunday
Instrumental version of my crossover classical-swing madrigal inspired by a poem by my father S N Solomons
describing Loughborough park (Queen's park) on a very hot day.

The air is heavy this afternoon,
Weighs heavily upon the mind
And the heat, semi translucent,
Presses against the slate blue sky,

Tactile as a membrane,
Bulging like cling film over
The pulsing microwave
Of our dear old Park.

And Time is slow and viscous.

And scattered haphazard
On the path and grass,
Objects, people, and colours
Have a surreal identity.

The grass is greener,
Sounds more strident,
People perfect samples,
Everything in your face.

And Time is slow and viscous

Little old ladies
With short white curly hair
Take short light genteel steps
Into their Third Age.

Old gaffers with shiny pates,
Moustache akimbo,
And spine welded stiff,
Recalling how they used to march
In their lost past.

And Time is slow and viscous

Families spread untidily
And ungainly upon the grass,
With fat pink ideal babies
Squirming and cooing.
And fat pink young mothers,
Posing and dozing.

Floating and flirting girls,
Golf ball muscled boyos
Showing off to them,
Showing off their talents
To the talent.

And Time is slow and viscous
In our dear old Park
(c) S N Solomons
