Schlummerlied, Op 7 No 6
The means employed in Schlummerlied, a lullaby taken from Heine’s early play William Ratcliff, is of the greatest economy: a repetitive, yet distinctively chromatic ‘charm’, suspended above an uninterrupted tonic pedal, provides mesmeric support for Stanford’s unassuming vocal lines which, especially in their melismatic flights of fancy, are almost Mahlerian.
