This beautiful work by Alexander Glazunov is lyrical and romantic in style.  It is written in ternary form and has long, sustained phrases.  The piece is not technically demanding; so its challenges lie in creating beautiful, expressive phrases.  It would make a nice addition to a recital program and is also appropriate for use in a church service.
