GUEST,Catherine Req: Song of Farewell (Now the green leaves grow) (49) RE: Req: Song of Farewell (Now the green leaves grow) 24 Aug 14


Thank you so much for this thread. We sang this in our Huntingdonshire Primary school in the summer of 1975. We sang it in two parts. It came from a yellow and red book 'Firsts and Seconds' - there were two volumes of these books - the other one was green and yellow. I found copies of both in the cupboard in the music room at my secondary school! I found a copy of one of these books here http://www.alangregory.co.uk/music/Firsts_and_Seconds_Voice_Parts_Edition_School_Songs.html?gclid=CKnnyobUrMACFUXLtAodljkAtA

I can remember that singing this song caused some sniffing amongst the parents at Prize Day at the end of term. It was a very well chosen song for a group of eleven year olds to sing, just as we left Primary school. These days, Year 6 students have 'proms' and whatnot to mark this significant point in their lives. We had 'Now the Green Leaves Grow, tomorrow I must go' and it's a very vivid memory nearly forty years on. Thank you Mrs Westcott!
