Description:

“Under the Spreading Chestnut Tree” is a set of variations, with fugue, for orchestra composed in 1939 by Jaromír Weinberger. It premiered under the direction of Sir John Barbirolli in New York City on October 12, 1939. The work is based on an English popular song of the period, which Weinberger is said to have mistaken for a folk song, and opens with the theme presented without preliminaries.

 

Lyrics to “Under the Spreading Chestnut Tree”

Under the spreading chestnut tree
I loved him and he loved me
There I used to sit up on his knee
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree

There beneath the boughs we used to meet
All his kisses were so sweet
All the little birdies went “tweet-tweet”
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree

I said “I love you”, and there ain’t no if‘s or but’s
He said “I love you”, and the blacksmith shouted “Chestnut!”

Under the spreading chestnut tree
There he said he’d marry me
Now you oughta see our family
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree!

There beneath the boughs we used to meet
All his kisses were so sweet
All the little birdies went “tweet-tweet”
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree

Under the spreading chestnut tree
There he said he’d marry me
Now you oughta see our family
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree!
