Chanson du berger, Op 11 No 5
One of Godard’s best-loved songs (recorded by Maggie Teyte and Gerald Moore) was the Chanson d’Estelle to a text by the eighteenth-century poet Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian (always known by his surname alone). The Chanson du berger, with a left-hand drone suggestive of folk music and the instruments of a village band, is a masculine pendant to that well-known piece for soprano.
