Songs of Courtship were set to music by Bevan Baker in 1992 for the Black Isle Singers. John loved them and maintained that they had "a simple directness which could have been written Yesterday". The courtship songs, richly imaginative, vary greatly in metre and in their treatment of the enigmatic oriental lyrics, some being lightfooted, some more robust, always rhythmically challenging. The 'Wedding Song' is a triumphant, rejoicing finale.
Listening to Songs of Courtship you may think Bevan Baker over modest as he spins a kind of musical gold in these short settings of poems written in the seventh century BC by Mao Shih and translated by the great Chinese scholar Arthur Waley. The writing for piano is fluent in If along the highroad, while the distantly oriental chords that open A moon rising are evocative in themselves and a surefooted prelude to the entry of the voices. Nearly all the music here was written in the final fifteen years of Bevan Baker's life, when it seems he enjoyed one of those enviable Indian summers that are granted to a few artists.
You'll struggle to find Baker's name in reference books, but his brand of beautifully crafted 'community music', much of it reminiscent of Britten at his best, is certainly worth knowing.
