The original version for voice and cello was composed as a wedding gift to friends of the composer, performed by Philippa Reeves and Claudine Cassidy in April 2003. A new arrangement for voice and piano was commissioned by 'Celebrating English Song' and publicly premiered by Julianne de Villiers and Christopher Gould in Tardebigge, Worcestershire, 25th July 2004. It can be performed as a group of three Cummings songs with 'who knows if the moon's a balloon' and 'maggie and millie and molly and may'.
