Brian Blyth Daubney (10/07/1929), an English composer (born in Bardney (Lincolnshire). He studied in Leicester with Benjamin Burrows, on whom he wrote a M Phil thesis in 1980. He was editor, and later chairman, of the British Music Society. Until his retirement in 1982 he was Principal Lecturer in Music at the Simon de Monfort University in Leicester, after which he was an examiner for the London College of Music until 1999. Being fully retired now, he devotes his time to writing music and poetry.
Brian Blyth Daubney is a Lincolnshire composer who has written a considerable amount of choral music both 'a cappella' and with organ accompaniment. Much of it is suitable for church use and several extended pieces (Stabat Mater, Requiem and Six Psalms) are ideal for concert performance.
A requiem - When I am dead my dearest
Period:Modernism
Composed in:1948
Musical form:song
Text/libretto:Christina (Georgina) Rossetti (1830 - 1894)
Song "When I am dead, my dearest", 1948, for mezzo-soprano and piano.
When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.

Christina Rossetti
(from Goblin Market and other Poems, published 1862)
