Description

Written for the NMC Songbook, this homage to Francis Poulenc rejoices in the bitter sweet harmony that he used to relish. Of a romantic, wistful nature, the words are concocted by Berkeley and also have a slightly French, Apollinaire-like sensibility with a deliberate use of elliptical contradiction: 'I hear your silent voice' etc. An indulgent gem for any good soprano.show more
