This setting comes from the musical ‘CLD – The Real Lewis Carroll’ - CLD being Charles Lutwidge Dodgson – who published under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. The show received 4 star reviews for its Oxford production, and uses the Alice books and characters to tell the tragic story and consequences of Dodgson’ s love for Lorina Liddell, wife of the Dean of Christ Church College, who was Alice’s mother in real life. Dodgson was in the habit of placing a white stone in a glass jar to mark important occasions in his life. He sings this song as a solo after he has fallen in love with Lorina.
