These two settings are the only known songs set to an English text
by Germaine Tailleferre and date from 1934. Although Tailleferre's
manuscript has disappeared, a photocopy was found in the papers of
the Italian singer and musicologist Patricia Adkins-Chiti, who kindly
provided a copy which served as the source for this publication. We
would like to publically thank her for this gesture which allowed these
works to be published.
These two songs were premièred in Paris in 1934 by the French Soprano
Anita Real with the composer at the piano. It has been suggested in Robert
Shapiro's "Germaine Tailleferre: a Biblio-biography" (Greenwood Press 1994)
that these setting were intended for a theatrical production, but no evidence
has been found to prove this supposition.
The Two texts are "In moments to delight devoted" subtitled "From the
Portuguese:"Tu Mi Chamas" and "Remembrance" from Hours of Idleness.
