Range À Chloris

À Chloris, a setting by Théophile de Viau, was composed by Reynaldo Hahn in 1816 (E Major) and published in 1922 as number 14 in his book Second recueil de 20 mélodies.

Reynaldo Hahn composed this song in 1916, a few years after becoming French (in 1912) and volunteering as a soldier during WWI to fight for his country. He wrote this poem as war was raging under his eyes, making this song even more timeless, as if frozen, into another historical area.
He choose to set a beautiful poem of Théophile de Viau, a famous poet of the French baroque period. As most poets and thinkers of the baroque period, he shared a passion for Greek mythology. Chloris, was a Nymph symbolizing spring, flowers and new beginnings. She is said, in Greek mythology, to have married Zephyrus, the god of west wind. The text expresses the delight of being loved by such a creature.

Reynaldo Hahn chose to open the song with a perpetual walking baroque bass in dialogue with a celestial melody. The voice slowly strolls between those two textures, leaning into slow deliberate dips creating a delightful soothing atmosphere.
One can only be reminded of Bach when listening to this melody: Bach, Greek mythology with a zest of French baroque elegance.
