The Lark in the Clear Air


“Dear thoughts are in my mind, And my soul soars enchanted, As I hear the sweet lark sing, In the clear air of the day”… the arrangement of this Irish folk song aims to create a feeling of calm and happiness to reflect the beautiful words. There are some high passages in the violin to represent the lark and the tune is shared by both instruments. The recording above is the cello duet version – very similar to the violin and cello duet.
