Rain Has Fallen (op. 10, no. 1)

(1936)

“Rain Has Fallen” is the first work in Samuel Barber's Three Songs, Op. 10, published in 1939. The accompaniment is laden with arpeggios, undoubtedly intended to mimic the patter of rain.

Rain Has Fallen All the Day
by James Joyce


Rain has fallen all the day.
O come among the laden trees:
The leaves lie thick upon the way
Of mem'ries.


Staying a little by the way
Of mem'ries shall we depart.
Come, my beloved, where I may
Speak to your heart.
