Item Number: GI.G-6368

Language: English/Latin. Text by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Text source: Coleridge, Samuel Taylor - The Virgin's Cradle Hymn; Latin copied by Colerdige from a print in a German village.

From the Evoking Sound Choral Series this solfege 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 solfege 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.

Solfege edition: Phrygian, Lydian modes.
