My favourite Australian art song repertoire

Posted by Australian Music Centre on 22 July, 2013

The AMC asked leading practitioners to select their favourite Australian art song repertoire, to provide delegates to the 2013 International Conference of Vocal Teachers (Brisbane 2013) with an introduction to this rich and diverse landscape.
For me this is the finest of all the many settings of this most beautiful poem. The music captures the evocative words of the 17th century poet, John Fletcher, with a mixture of lyricism and passion. The word-setting is supple and expressive, and the harmonies are always interesting and occasionally unexpected.
Michael Halliwell 
A compact setting of the well-known Fletcher poem. Piano and voice weave effectively for flowing phrases. Medium voice
