Rêverie

First line:
Sur le flot des rêves
composer
1872
author of text

 
The song Rêverie is related to Goethe in that the ever-willing Barbier has taken one of Gounod’s hit tunes (from the Faust ballet music) and added words of no great import which are skilfully adapted to the music’s rhythm. This was a respectable marketing ploy and a good example of recycled Gounod. When we hear the song sung as it is here we do not carp at its hybrid origins.
