Morrison’s Shakespeare Songs were written in 1984.  The octavo contains the following pieces for men’s chorus: I. When Daisies Pied, II Take, O take those lips away, and III Full Fathom Five.

The percussion is optional, but it is greatly preferred that it be included in performances of this work.  All of the percussion should be playable by one professional player or by two experienced amateurs.
