Felix Mendelssohn: You Spotted Snakes (A Midsummer Night's Dream)

Books | Alto, Soprano, SSAA

Publisher: Novello & Co Ltd.
Composer: Felix Mendelssohn
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
Mendelssohn particularly loved Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, having read it with his sister from childhood. His incidental music for the play ranks among the best of its genre, skillfully generating the spirit of each of the characters, establishing ambiences for the various scenes and complement Shakespeare’s own drama. Mendelssohn’s music for this play is best known for the famous Wedding March, though the work contains an array of beautiful music. The instrumental movements are frequently performed as an Orchestral suite or as stand-alone pieces.In spite of its title, You Spotted Snakes is a lively lullabye sung to Titania in Act II. It is during this sleep that Oberon enchants Titania and all the rest of the action unfolds. You Spotted Snakes is scored for solo Voices SA with Voices SSAA and Piano accompaniment.
