Notes on the songs in the cycle:
1. 'Secrets of a trembling passion' This is a dramatic song in a minor key,
in which the love feels an internal duel between fleeing and longing.
2. 'Desire' This song reflects the lover waking up in the morning in the glow of love.
It is a more lyrical song, using more major harmonies.
3. 'Do You Remember' Written with a haunting modal melody it captures the lovers musings on beautiful moments together in the twilight.
4. 'Catch Me if You Can' This rhythmic song has a light and breezy mood which captures the elation of the lovers. Although in a major key, it contains a contrasting section in a minor key where the voice accompanies the piano solo.
5. 'Don’t Flee from Me' This song where the singer asks her lover not to leave her in sorrow, is the most operatic of the collection. It is in a similar minor key to the first song.
6. 'In Only One Glance' In this final song, the lover recognises her soul mate in one brief moment and realises their eternal connection.
