William Walton: Vocal Music (Hardback)

Books | Voice, Piano Accompaniment

Composer: William Walton
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
This volume contains newly edited versions of all William Walton's songs for voice and piano, together with Anon in Love for voice and guitar and songs from radio plays. It also includes the first publication of the scores of the orchestral versions of Anon in Love and A Song for the Lord Mayor's Table.

William Walton wrote songs throughout his life, the first, 'Tell me where is Fancy bred?', written when he was a chorister at Christ Church, Oxford, the last, A Song for the Lord Mayor's Table, a song-cycle for Elisabeth Schwarzkopf written in the early 1960s.

They all reveal his ear for word-setting, an imaginative response to the text, and an ability to conjure striking musical images from his chosen material.
