"The Virgin's Cradle Hymn," Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1772–1834; Latin copied by Coleridge from a print in a German village
Evoking Sound, Evoking Sound
From the Evoking Sound Choral Series this solfège edition of “The Virgin’s Cradle Hymn,” a translation from the obscure Latin by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, is among GIA catalog’s most unique: “Sleep, sweet babe! My cares beguiling….Come, soft slumber, balmily!”
The extensive notes are invaluable to performance practice and interpretation, and the treatise on the solfège analysis of the Phrygian and Lydian modes is a good education in itself!
Effective preparation and teaching will make this piece both fascinating and fulfilling for singers.
