Camille Saint-saëns - la sérénité
ARRANGED FOR SOPRANO (OR TREBLE INSTRUMENT) AND HARP
La Sérénité was composed by French composer and pianist Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921). The original work for piano and voice features a beautiful text by Marie Barbier about a peaceful eternity. The music echoes this sentiment, with the unusual musical indication “Assez lent, très calme, sans nuances” (fairly slow, very calm, without nuance). This arrangement takes advantage of the harp’s resonance, and consists of warm, rolled chords that move up and down the registers. This flexible version can be performed on a recital as a harp and voice duet, or adapted for any harp and treble instrument combination to sight-read at gigs.
Instrumentation: Flexible-- Soprano and Harp, or Treble Instrument and Harp
