Mary's Ghost image
A humorous piece for SSATB choir unaccompanied. This is a setting of a "pathetic ballad" by Thomas Hood (1799-1845) which tells of Mary who appears as a ghost to her young William to tell him that she has suffered the attentions of body snatchers . . . "You thought that I was buried deep, quite decent like and chary, But from her grave in Marybone, They've come and boned your Mary!"
This is No.1 of Four Bits of Nonsense by Michael Gryspeerdt - all four Bits are also available published together under No.03115.
Duration: 4 minutes
