Composed originally as a vocal duo as I walked one day from Denning Point in the East End of London
to sing at a service at St Michael's Cornhill around 1986,
this version can be played on various instruments but preferably duos of the same instrument
or at least instruments of the same range.
The sound sample here is an electronic preview but the original vocal version, sung by the composer, can be enjoyed on youtube at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snw7VW86T6k

The words of the original piece are:
I heard a happy song on a lonely city street; but it was a song of the past.
It was a song from the days when the street was a meadow path;
it was a song when the flowers on the window boxes had grass for company.
It was a song when the Cathedral could be seen above the rooftops.

I heard a happy song on a lonely city street; but it was a song from the future:
song from the days when the street will dance with children
It was a song when the flowers in the window boxes will learn to sing.
It was a song when the rooftops won't be seen above the clouds.

I heard a happy song on a lonely city street;
and it is a song of now
But it is a song I will sing from the rooftops to entrance the clouds.
