Browne 6 Songs High Voice/Piano

Books | High Voice, Piano

Publisher: Thames Publishing
Composer: W Denis Browne
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
Gems in their own right, these songs offer tantalizing glimpses of what might have been had Browne been granted time.The life of gifted composer, Organist, musician and teacher W Denis Browne was cut cruelly short when, at age 26, he was mortally wounded at the battle for Gallipoli, just a few weeks after he buried his friend the poet Rupert Brooke on Skyros. In his brief years, he had a particularly active musical life, showing brilliance in his music criticism, and composing a few works, most of which were destroyed, at his request, after his death. These six songs, and in particular To Gratiana Dancing and Singing, demonstrate great gifts proceeding from bud to bloom, and anticipating some of the impressionistic later works of Debussy.

      Lovely songs (I've heard recordings of two of them), but the accompaniments are fiendishly difficult.
