This is one of my all-time favorite art songs but, for me, in a new range. I used to sing it as a lyric soprano but now I'm singing it in a contralto range. It's amazing the different mood it brings to the piece for me. Hope you like it.

Music by Henri DuParc; Lyrics by Charles Baudelaire
Vocals and translation by Carla J. Patterson

Yes! French stuff! Extremely haunting piano that is beautiful. I really like the contralto range a lot more than the soprano. I think it matches and also contrasts the piano nicely. Soprano seems too harsh and not as emotive. Seriously, that piano is really wonderful, full and real. And the reverb on both the voice and the piano is fantastically cavernlike. Great song!

Thanks Zip! I have always been drawn to DuParc's music - I always thought I could only do it as a soprano but then I found this tenor version and was thrilled. smiley

Stunning. When I closed my eyes, I could feel as if I were in a concert hall, the audience mesmerized all around me. You have a wonderful voice; being that this is the first time I've had the pleasure of experiencing your music, I can't speak to a comparison between your soprano offerings and what you've shared here. But I would guess that you have an enviable vocal range, as this sounded completely natural and unforced. Bravo!

Two big names of well known singers came through my mind while listening to this beautiful song you sing - Edith Piaf and Nico .... Your voice has this feel of mix of quality,of those two female singer voices,beautifully blend together inside in your own unique voice ..
Enjoyed it very much ! smiley

Intimate, introspective & pensive. Emotionally charged. Carla you often make the hairs stand up and goosebumps form. smiley Definitely feels like I am in a vast auditorium/concert hall. With perfect acoustics, the audience is all frozen. Entranced, hanging onto each note from the stage. It's a beauty.

Thanks for sharing with us, masterful original composition, performance & production.

Thanks Andi!

Thanks Chris, it's good to have your love notes on any of my songs. This one, though, is just me singing - the music is by Henri DuParc and the words are by Charles Baudelaire! This is an oldie for real. smiley I used to sing this in my high soprano voice back in the day - I finally realized recently that I could sing it in the tenor range instead and have this low rich sound. The high voice version (listen to, for example, Kiri TeKanawa - anything by her is amazing!) is also beautiful. But, I'm growing into my low voice now and loving the resonance.

Thanks Iqbal! Your comments always mean a lot.
