There comes o'er the valley a shadow
circa 1898 to the poem Wie Melodien zieht es mir by Klaus Groth; revised 1910 with Ives's own words
author of text

Evidence is dated 1910, but here again Ives had substituted his own words to what was a much earlier setting (about 1898) of the poem ‘Wie Melodien zieht es mir’ by Klaus Groth (also set by Brahms, in his Op 105). In this lyric landscape, the onset of night is symbolized in the voice’s drooping, descending phrases.

Evidence est datée de 1910 mais, là encore, Ives a substitué ses propres mots à ceux de «Wie Melodien zieht es mir», le poème de Klaus Groth qu’il avait mis en musique vers 1898 et dont Brahms fit une version dans son op. 105. Dans ce paysage lyrique, le début de la nuit est symbolisé par les phrases vocales fléchissantes, descendantes.

Français: Hypérion

Evidence ist mit 1910 datiert, aber auch hier ersetzte Ives die Originalworte einer wesentlich früheren Vertonung (um 1898) des Gedichtes „Wie Melodien zieht es mir“ von Klaus Groth (das auch Brahms in seinem op. 105 vertonte) mit seinen eigenen. In dieser lyrischen Landschaft wird das Dämmern der Nacht durch die müde sinkenden Phrasen der Singstimme symbolisiert.
