This One More River
is a song that Peter Warlock
arranged from The Week-End Book
(1924), the words and tune being attributed to good old Anon
. The arrangement can be found in The Choral music of Peter Warlock Vol. 1
It humoursly lists the animals, two-by-two etc. up six-by-six, entering the Arch before the door was closed and it started to rain. The animals listed are the centipede, the kangaroo, the elephant on the back of a flea. a camel that got stuck in the door, my favourite, The Missing Link who was the last to arrive and fiannly a monkey up to his tricks.
Jolly stuff indeed and greatly enjoyed by Dr. Rosteck
