About the Music
Faure's interest in choral music was superseded by his love for chanson as evidenced by his output. His fascination for the texts he chose to set is clearly seen in the delicate melodies and subtle harmonies that surround them. Perhaps even more than that of Debussy, Faure's chansons are in the hands of almost every young man and woman studying voice. They are the epitome of great literature for the young singer. The arranger set Au Bord de L'eau$quot with this concept in mind and to expose a wider audience to the beautiful lyricism of Gabriel Faure.

Alan Raines, Director of Choral Activities at Baylor University,
is a frequent guest conductor and sought-after clinician,
conducting all-state and honor choirs throughout much of the
United States. His guest appearances abroad have taken him to
South Korea, Europe and Russia. Dr. Raines's choirs have performed for
regional conventions of the American Choral Directors Association
and the Georgia Music Educators Association. He is also a member of
the conducting faculty at the summer festival La Musica Lirica in Urbania, Italy.
