G. Fauré Op. 2 no 2

This is a song of transition as Fauré’s early romance style begins to merge with the greater depths of the mélodie. The subtle, and sometimes unexpected, harmonic shadings in these restless (piano)quavers enliven the potential monotony of the accompaniment; in this roving harmony we can savour the sailors’ love of adventurous exploration. As each strophe progresses towards its vocal climax the bass line falls in steps, widening the distance between the piano’s left hand and the vocal line.

I made the song suitable for playing with our SATB recorderensemble by adding the harmony in the ATB parts.
