The Silver Swan – Sheet Music

View Craig McLeish's Full Store

One of my all time top pieces of music period! It’s small but perfectly formed, and what I find so remarkable is that any of the 5 voice parts could be the melody, they are so beautifully constructed.  Some versions have the 2nd Alto line as a first tenor, and you may need to redistribute the parts slightly depending on the forces at your disposal.

Best not rushed, and nothing above a mild mp, with the final lines fading away as the swan itself fades.  Madrigals were of course designed to be sung one to a part, but if they are learned well and each part match phrasing and breathing well they work fine for choirs too.  Try this and you won’t be disappointed.
