Rootham Op.72: "Jemima" (1923)

Uploaded on Sep 19, 2018

In the original Curwen edition 50600 published in 1923, the lyrics attribution was described as "Anonymous". But we now know that the text was written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. By today's standards the poem is politically incorrect and very harsh, but at the time corporal punishment was an everyday part of children's life both at home and at school.
