Love bade me welcome

composer
1985
author of text

 
Love bade me welcome is an evocative setting, dating from 1985, of the poem by George Herbert. It evokes Bulgarian chant in its rich melodic line accompanied by an ison, and the simple harmonized repertoire of the Russian Church in the chord sequences at the ends of the three sections; but in its sensitivity and reticence (a reticence which in the end only intensifies the conveying of the words) it is unquestionably English.

from notes by Ivan Moody © 1991

Love bade me welcome («L’Amour me souhaita la bienvenue») est une mise en musique évocatrice, de 1985, du poème de George Herbert. Il rappelle le chant bulgare, avec sa riche ligne mélodique accompagnée d’un «ison», et le simple répertoire de l’Église russe avec les séquences d’accords à la fin des trois sections; mais dans sa réticence et sa sensibilité, il est indubitablement anglais.

Love bade me welcome ist die 1985 entstandene, beziehungsreiche Vertonung eines Gedichts von George Herbert. Mit ihrer üppigen Melodielinie, begleitet von einem ison, beschwört sie bulgarische Gesänge herauf, und mit den Akkordsequenzen jeweils am Ende der drei Abschnitte das schlicht harmonisierte Repertoire der russischen Kirche. Dagegen ist das Stück in seiner Sensibilität und Zurückhaltung (die schließlich die Bedeutung der Worte nur verstärkt) ganz und gar englisch.
