CP 1089
The second in the set of three compositions by Allan Bevan, titled "For a Dream's Sake," using a text by Christina Rosetti. Together with "An End" and "Echo" Bevan manages to convey the poet's preoccupation with a disillusionment that she came to understand as a natural condition of human love. Harmonic structure, accompaniment, dynamics, all paint a bittersweet picture of hope and lost love.
