ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You can use freely these piano accompaniments for either private or public rehearshal or concert performance (with the singer). You can use them for for radio broadcast if you mention that all accompaniments are by Xavier Palacios. For Tv broadcast you will need to ask a written permission to Xavier Palacios (The artist and Producer).
Xavier Palacios studied at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris de Paris with Antonio Ruiz Pipo, a pupil of Alfred Cortot, and Billy Eidi, a renowed accompanist of French song. He also studied Musical analysis with Ginette keller, a pupil of Nadia Boulanger. He has given many recitals in France and has been the assistant and accompanist of Laurence Russel Albert (Pushkin Prize, Metropolitan Opera) for a few years.

This first volume of Fauré Songs (Vol.1) Accompaniments with transpositions for Medium and High Voice contains 10 Fauré favorite songs with various transpositions to suit your voice perfectly. It has been carefully worked out. Particular care has been given to phrasing, breathing , as well as rendering the atmosphere of the song, allowing the singer to sing freely, but also putting him on "the right track" for phrasing, tempo and musical content. We also recommend that the singer rehearshes without the accompaniment as well. But these tracks will give him the necessary tools to give a consistent interpretation of Fauré Songs, that he should be able to convey to another accompanist.

We always give the original key first, if it is in the Medium to High Vocal range. This is the case of most of the songs in this volume.

We give here the key Table of IMC (International Music Company)High Voice Edition (30 Songs) and the matching tracks :

2. Après un Rêve in D Minor, Op. 7 No 1. The Original key was Cm, but this transposition in D has been approved by Fauré
4. Au Bord de l' Eau in C sharp Minor (original key), Op. 8 No 1
6. En Prière in F sharp Major
9. Clair de lune in B flat Minor (original key), Op. 46 No 2
18. Les Berceaux in B Minor, Op. 23 No 1
20. Le Secret in F Major (original key), Op. 23 No 3
23. Lydia in G Major (original key), Op. 4 No 2
26. Nell in G flat Major (original key), Op.18 No 1

Here is The Schirmer High Voice Table and the matching tracks

2. Après un Rêve in D Minor, Op. 7 No 1
4. Au Bord de l' Eau in C sharp Minor (original key), Op. 8 No 1
7. En Prière in F Major

20. Le Secret in F Major (original key), Op. 23 No 3
23. Lydia in G Major (original key), Op. 4 No 2
26. Nell in G flat Major (original key), Op.18 No 1

Here is The Hal Leonard High Voice Table and the matching tracks

2. Après un Rêve in D Minor, Op. 7 No 1
4. Au Bord de l' Eau in C sharp Minor (original key), Op. 8 No 1
7. En Prière in F Major

21. Le Secret in E Major, Op. 23 No 3,
23. Lydia in G Major (original key), Op. 4 No 2
26. Nell in G flat Major (original key), Op.18 No 1

As you see, there are very little discrepancies among the publishers. The only song to have a different key is Lydia.
The High Version for Lydia is G Major for Leduc, IMC and Schirmer, and F Major for Hal Leonard.


Vocal range : the keys used for the transpositions are determined by usage of renowned recording artists, and by usage of authoritative editions. The classification High-Medium-Low favoured by these editions varies sometimes : the key chosen for ,a transposition for, say, "Medium Voice" in a given edition can be different from the key in another "Medium Voice" edition. We try to provide as many transpositions as the authoritative Editions do.

We use 5 vocal ranges instead of 3 : High, Medium-High, Medium, Medium-Low, and Low.
The "Medium Low" and "Low" albums apply to "True low Voices" , Mezzos, Baritones, Contraltos and Bass-Baritones. The High, Medium-High and Medium apply to sopranos -From Coloratura to Dramatic Sopranos-, to light Mezzos (Mezzo Leggero), and from Tenors to Light Baritones. Our "Medium Voice " classification can sometimes suit young Baritones, or Young Mezzos,, and even Young Sopranos, they should in that case follow the advice of their teacher.

For Male Voices : High Voice : Top note(s) G4 or higher
Medium High : Top note(s) F#4
Medium : Top note(s) F4
Medium-Low : Top note(s) E4
Low : Top note(s) Eb4 or Lower.

For Female Voices : High Voice : Top note(s) G5 or higher
Medium High : Top note(s) F#5
Medium : Top note(s) F5
Medium-Low : Top note E5
Low : Top note(s) Eb5 or Lower.

Of course this classification applies to the notes found in the music. To secure singing these notes properly, the singer should be able to sing one tone or one tone and a half Higher, and one tone or one tone and a half lower for the lowest notes.

Last, but not least, Vocal range is only one aspect of Voice classification. Choose your repertoire following the "nature" of your Voice, or your "Voice type" if you like, and the advice of your teacher.
