    I chose this piece for my French choir, who are always asking for classical pieces in French! Although the piece is modern, the words are from a very well-know French poet. The committee were a bit doubtful, as they thought the harmonies would be too difficult, but in actual...

    fact the choir are managing it well, and enjoying it. It is a mixed community choir of 45 men and women.

  • December 28, 2010 Ce Beau Printemps - exquisite

    Our north of Boston world music group HALALISA sang this piece last May and it is unique, beautiful and an exquisite setting for the poem. Some dissonant complexity and time signature changes make it initially challenging to sight read through, but with practice it is a gem. I would sing...

    it again anytime! And that is why I am looking into more of Mark Sirett's compositions!
