For those of you who have been looking for the poem that was in Four
Weddings and a Funeral; Benjamin Britten wrote music for that Auden poem.
It's called Funeral Blues. It was originally part of the incidental music
for the 1937 film Ascent of F6.  I was finally able to find a recording of
the song on a Unicorn-Kanchana CD, Britten's Blues and Cabaret Songs, sung
by Jill Gomez with Martin Jones on the piano.  Also, Joan Morris and
William Bolcum sometimes perform it when they do their cabaret show. Hope
this helps those of you who have had request for it.
