COME AGAIN

About 15 years ago I started a Vocal Group. We mainly sing pop music, sometimes something classical.
Last November our conductor had to stop working with us and because I've learned a lot from Rob en from BIAB, I decided to take over his duties.
They asked for something classical, so I looked for something that was not too difficult (although we also sing some complicated popsongs) and which could be performed by 3 vocal ranges: sopranos, mezzo sopranos and altos (of which I am one).
I found "Come again".The music was written by John Dowland at then end of the 16th Century. It is unknown who wrote the lyrics, they were already there when he wrote the music.
It strikes me that it sounds so "modern", it might have been written yesterday.
The song is in the public domain.
I decided to make my own (simple) arrangement with Biab and I recorded the 3 parts and sent it to the members of my Vocal Group.
We are now rehearsing the song.
When I had recorded my own version (with my own vocals) I thought I might as wel provide it with a video and post it on YouTube.
I tried to let the video make a connection between the present and the era of John Dowland.

Anne-Marie

Come Again

Come again,
sweet love doth now invite,
thy graces that refrain
to do me due delight
To see, to hear, to touch, to kiss, to die
with thee again in sweetest sympathy

Come again,
that I may cease to mourn
through thy unkind disdain for now left and forlorn.
I sit, I sigh, I weep, I faint, I die,
in deadly pain and endless misery

All the day, the sun that lends me shine
By frowns do cause me pine
and feeds me with delay
Her smiles, my springs, that make my joys to grow,
Her frowns, the winter of my woe

And for those who want to meet my Vocal Group this is the ffwnn website

Hi, Anne-Marie !

What a nice song
so superbly sung - enjoyed
it really much ! Also visited
your group and the first thing
that came to my mind is - do you
sing barbershop ? and if not - why not?
I think your group would be just great
singing some wonderful bshop-arrangements
like f.i. " That´s What Friends Are For "
or "Mr Sandman" etc. ?

Cheers
Dani

Beautifully done. It is the vocals that stand out for me and I love the simplicity of the arrangement. Not overdone. Just right!

Excellent job.

This is really beautiful. I love John Dowland.

This was a great version of that song. I really loved it. Makes me want to break out the old lute.

How delightful! Such a joy to listen to.

And the video adds to the forlorn and wistful mood perfectly.


Wonderful job.

This is top shelf. Loved the instrumentation, vocals and vocal effects. Expertly done!

This is a perfect example that less is more!

Wow - although it has already been said, I'll say it again - this is absolutely beautiful. It has a piercing, haunting quality to it. The stripped back instrumentation mixed with those striking vocals makes this to be an almost otherworldly listen.

You should be really proud of this one. Thanks for sharing smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks Dani!
We do not really sing barbershop (most barbershop groups are 4, we are 9 in the meantime) but we do sing some a capella songs, if that is what you mean.

"Perfection is not when there is nothing to add; rather, it is when there is nothing left to take away."

This song to us is a classic example of that.

Overwhelming talent on display!

An awesome production and performance...
