Mandoline (Dupont/Verlaine)

Accompaniment + Melody at 2:40.

Today’s #WeeklyWednesday is the accompaniment to the French song “Mandoline” – but you can also check out my performance of it here:

Paul Verlaine’s poem has been set to music several times – mine is composed by Gabriel Dupont.  You may be familiar with Fauré’s version; and I love Debussy’s (this recording by Diana Damrau is awesome!)!

If you’d like to see his poem translated into English, this site does a nice job.

FYI: I’m a singer, not an accompanist! I couldn’t find an accompaniment when preparing this piece and needed something to practice with – so I made this track myself. I hope it helps you when preparing the piece – and if you’d like to download a copy of my track, just let me know! 

Thanks for watching and happy singing!
