The song was written in February, 1975 and is dedicated to Kenneth Riegel, a tenor who "commissioned the song" (Hundley, 1985). It was first performed at Harvard in 1976, with Mr. Riegel accompanied by Mr. Hundley for The Direct Vision artists of Boston in honor of the painter Marilyn Powers. It is included in the collection Four Songs, published by Boosey & Hawkes, 1989.
