My favourite Australian art song repertoire
Posted by Australian Music Centre on 15 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.
A short sentimental song to a text by Emily Bronte. Gentle and evocative
The disjunct melody and some of the unexpected melodic intervals are supported in parts of the accompaniment of this short, delicate song, one of Sutherland’s earliest known songs, written when she was just sixteen years old. The tonality of the song is the aspect most likely to challenge singers at first. Singing disjunct intervals, the legato singing of sustained phrases, controlled breathing and sotto voce singing are all techniques in learning this song.
