Item Number: PE.P71902
This edition, based on the one in "The Art of French Song", presents Faure's arguably most famous song, prepared by the French music expert Roger Nichols, in an extremely practical publication: in three alternative keys for high, medium and low voices -- C minor (the original key), D minor and Bb minor. As documented in the preface, recordings made by singers who worked with Faure define a more ardent, urgent tempo and mood than we may be used to from later performances.
