My Romance; The Lyrics. 

My romance doesn’t have to have a moon in the sky

My romance doesn’t need a blue lagoon standing by

No month of May, no twinkling stars

No hideaway, no soft guitars

My romance doesn’t need a castle rising in Spain

Nor a dance with a constantly surprising refrain

Wide awake, I can make my most fantastic dreams come true

My romance doesn’t need a thing but you.


My Romance; The Arrangement.

I’ve decided to open with an SSAA unaccompanied statement of the song. It’s simple in its design, but challenging in the chords and how I’ve voiced them…lots of colour contained in each chord, almost as if the person intoning the song is full of emotion, but saying these beautiful poignant words with tender poignancy.

The second section is a Bossa Nova with a slinky, seductive lead-in passage into the main tune. I hope Chanterelle will enjoy the fat, luscious triplets, delicious minor 7th chords, and the up-beat suave of this second half of the arrangement!

The recording, once again in the dulcet tones of Sibelius 7, plays up until the beginning of the improv. solos.
