This masterly work was written for the combined musical talents of Peter Pears and Dennis Brain. Framed by a horn solo played on natural harmonics to evoke an atmosphere of far-off, primeval innocence, the Serenade is an extraordinary example of Britten's ability to set an anthology of texts bound together by a similar theme, in this case, the world of night, sleep and dreams. The twilight atmosphere that characterizes this beautiful and evocative work is offset by the two settings that form its centerpiece, the worm in the rose of Blake's Elegy and a nightmarish setting of the anonymous 15th-century Lyke Wake Dirge. This item is a vocal score only.

Songs Include:

  • Chanson Triste (Tchaikovsky)
  • Dirge (From Twelve Rounds)
  • ELEGY
  • EPILOGUE
  • Hymn
  • PASTORAL
  • PROLOGUE
  • Sonnet

"I placed my order for an accordion on a Sunday morning before President's Day, expecting the typical delays associated with weekend and holiday orders. Then, to my surprise, the accordion arrived on Tuesday right after President's Day. I was very pleased, not only for the quality of service, but also for the quality of the instrument. The sound is beautiful, and I will play it in church this coming Sabbath. Many thanks"
