Those evening bells

1903; revised 1907
author of text
Thoe evening bells, from A Selection of National Popular Airs, i, 1818, verses 1 and 3

Those evening bells, adapted in 1907 from a 1903 song to a different text, is another of Ives’s settings of Thomas Moore: parallel fifths in the left hand and arpeggiated chords in the right create a ‘bell-like’ play of overtones.

Those evening bells («Ces cloches vespérales»), adaptée en 1907 d’une mélodie de 1903 composée sur un autre texte, met encore en musique des vers de Thomas Moore: des quintes parallèles à la main gauche et des accords arpégés à la main droite créent un jeu d’harmoniques «carillonnant».

Those evening bells, 1907 aus einem Lied von 1903 auf einen anderen Text adaptiert, ist eine weitere Ives-Vertonung von Thomas Moore: Quintenparallelen in der linken Hand und Akkord-Arpeggien in der rechten kreieren ein „glockenhaftes“ Spiel mit Obertönen.
