E-SCORE PEDF VERSION
This melody with modern harmonies written for soprano voice with piano accompaniment, describes the sad journey of a tear, born of the pain felt at the loss of a child. The text is written voluntarily in prose. The very slow tempo demands great vocal technique and great musicality, which are indispensable in mastering the difﬁculties of this work. The piano supports the text by mirroring the slow progression of this tear, using different sonorities which permit the listener to follow the inevitable descent of the tear from the eye to the ground. The interpretation demands expression and sensitivity in order to restore a particularly difﬁcult on the else which is desired.
