This is a comic duet based on the famous Thomas Hardy poem. Good comic tim­ing from the singers is almost as cru­cial as good singing to pull off the effect. Per­form­ers are encour­aged to ham it up and find the right tempo for each singer’s voice.

A great way to sup­port new music is to per­form the music you find here.
