English, French. Text Source: French-Alsace Folk Song.

Hopsa! Lisella!, an 18th century Alsatian folk song, quite literally sways back and forth as it is sung. The feeling of acceleration typical of 18th century song is captured through ritards, accelerandos, and tempo changes at the beginning of each verse. Add tambourine and triangle to enhance the French character of the song. In two parts, this accessible setting will work nicely with any treble group. Length: 3:20.

    I chose this because my small choir performs to a mixed audience of French and English, and it's so difficult to find songs in French that we can manage. My choir like this as a contrast to our slower pieces.
