Crouch End Festival Chorus

Crouch End Festival Chorus (CEFC) is a symphonic choir based in Crouch End, a northern suburb of London. CEFC was formed in 1984 by John Gregson and David Temple, who remains the choir's conductor. Unlike other large symphony choirs the chorus is independent, promoting its own concerts of choral and choral-orchestral music in venues including the Barbican and the South Bank Centre as well as smaller venues in North London and elsewhere. Its repertoire spans the entire history of Western choral music. It has commissioned works by composers including John Woolrich, Joby Talbot, Howard Haigh, Orlando Gough, David Bedford, Paul Patterson, Robert Hugill, Simon Bainbridge, Sally Beamish and Ian Lawrence. more »

A time to be reapin', a time to be sowin'.
The green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.
'Twas so good to be young then, in a season of plenty,
When the catfish were jumpin' as high as the sky.

A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin'.
A time to be courtin' a girl of your own.
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth,
And to stand by your wife at the moment of birth.

A time to be reapin', a time to be sowin'.
The green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.
'Twas so good to be young then, with the sweet smell of apples,
And the owl in the pine tree a-winkin' his eye.

A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin'.
A time just for livin', a place for to die.
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth,
Now the green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.

'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth,
Now the green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.
