Sea Pictures, Op. 37 is a song cycle by Sir Edward Elgar consisting of five songs written by various poets. It was set for contralto and orchestra, though a distinct version for piano was often performed by Elgar. Many mezzo-sopranos have sung the piece. The songs are: “Sea Slumber Song” by Roden Noel (approximately 4 minutes) “In Haven (Capri)” by Caroline Alice Elgar, the composer’s wife (under 2 minutes) “Sabbath Morning at Sea” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (approximately 4 minutes) “Where Corals Lie” by Richard Garnett (approximately 3 minutes) “The Swimmer” by Adam Lindsay Gordon (approximately 5 minutes). Much of the vocal line of the first song, “Sea Slumber Song,” is heard again in other parts of the cycle; most notably, the second stanza is heard again almost in its entirety as part of the finale.
