Band Piece: The Old Wells by Eric Ball [FS58]
The introduction presents the verse of the old Salvation Army song "Go back to the old wells" to paint a musical picture of someone experiencing spiritual difficulties; while the chorus provides the answer and becomes the theme of the work.
Go back to the old wells where the waters are sweet;
Go back to the old wells where joy and duty meet.
The waters of the old wells will your spirit restore;
Go right back to the dear old wells, leave them no more.
