Edward Elgar’s 1899 Sea Pictures, op. 37, in their original keys for high voice and piano.
“Elgar composed the piece on his 1894 Broadwood Square piano while residing at Birchwood Lodge, Great Storridge in Herefordshire. The songs were originally written in high keys for a soprano voice, but transposed to lower keys for the orchestral version, largely at the request of the contralto Clara Butt. The songs were composed in July 1899 (apart from ‘In Haven (Capri)’, which was a reworking of his 1897 ‘Love alone will stay’).” [wikipedia]
