Subject: RE: Common poems set to music
Joseph Sobel has a recording of original "songs from the poetry of W.B. Yeats" called In the Deep Heart's Core. It's really lovely. He intersperses some of them with Irish tunes. Well worth looking into.

I made a setting of When You Are Old a number of years ago. The first stanza is very hard to set.
