A Night Song

First line:
The young May moon is beaming, love
author of text
1813; The Young May Moon, verse 1, from A Selection of Irish Melodies

A Night Song is dated 1895 and sets words by Thomas Moore. This is one of a group of eight songs Ives called ‘Sentimental Ballads’. It is a beautiful piece in late-Victorian drawing-room mode.

A Night Song («Un chant nocturne», 1895), sur un texte de Thomas Moore, est une des huit «ballades sentimentales», pour reprendre l’appellation ivesienne. C’est une page splendide, à la mode des salons de la fin de l’ère victorienne.
