Non Semper Imbres - a musical setting by Sue Casson

of further verses from James Logie Robertson's Scottish dialect poem Non Semper Imbres.

David Maxwell Fyfe copies out this poem in a letter to his wife Sylvia as the trials are drawing to a close, saying that it 'rather expresses our mood just now'.

 

Non Semper Imbres is first sung in Dreams of Peace & Freedom III to evoke the landscape of David Maxwell Fyfe's childhood. In this reprise later verses from the poem, with their implicit message of hope - ‘not always raining’ look forward to a world after the Nuremberg Trials, and better times to come.
