Nocturnes addresses aspects of the common theme of 'Night'. Morten Lauridsen's setting of Rilke's impassioned and atmospheric Sa Nuit D'été is rich with dense, colourful harmonies, while Soneto De La Noche is quiet, serene and folk-like, reflecting the eloquence with which the poet, Pablo Neruda, speaks of everlasting, eternal love. Sure On This Shining Night is a lyrical, beautiful setting of James Agee's well known love poem. We return to Rilke in the epilogue, Voici Le Soir, bringing the Nocturnes to a quiet end as darkness arrives.

A Piano accompaniment is included where required.

Beautiful music. Can be used as a whole work, or each piece chosen and used separately.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating This is a lovely collection of Nocturnes. All, with the exception of "Sure On This Shining Night" could be classified as falling in to the more "Contemporary" genre, and would require Choirs of a high degree of musicality to perform them effectively. "Sure On This Shining Night" is by far my favourite piece in this collection. It has a beautiful Piano Accompaniment and the four part Harmonies are so simple but effective. The quiet ending just works perfectly. It is a pity that this piece is not available for purchase individually.
