Alternative Reading In Elgar's Chanson De Matin


Recommended Posts

After discussing Elgar's Imperial March I would like to point out an alternative reading in the same composer's Chanson de Matin.


On the last page of the Brewer arrangement, 8th bar (one bar before the fermata on the high E):


- Elgar's orchestral version and Brewer's organ transcription have a quaver G followed by 6 semiquavers B C# E F# G B

- Elgar's version for violin and piano and Thomson's piano solo arrangement have 8 semiquavers G B C# E G H C# E and the high E an octave higher. This lovely version could easily be produced on the organ with a 4ft flute instead of Brewer's 'Choir soft 8ft' and playing an octave lower.
