The selections in this songbook are second-to-none, with some of the most beautiful and affecting French choral music compiled into one volume. Many original works are included here, with these choral compositions by giants of French classical music often being regarded as some of their finest work. Pieces like Madrigal by Gabriel Fauré, a new edition of Maurice Ravel's incredible Trois Chansons, Camille Saint-Saëns's Calme Des Nuits and Trinquons as well as Reynaldo Hahn's three Rondels, originally written for SATB choir. 

French Songs And Choruses also features a great many arrangements of works that have been enjoyed by choirs and singers for many years. The harmonies of songs like Chanson D'Amour by Gabriel Fauré convey just how stunning a song this is to hear as well as to sing, while others like Debussy's Beau Soir offer a similarly beautiful take on a different theme. With all of these songs, the joy will be in careful selection, fantastic practice and the thrill of performance for you and your audience. Such a grand selection of Songs And Choruses For Mixed-Voice Choirs is sure to enhance or invigorate your choir's repertoire, giving you an enjoyable introduction to the finest choral music that France has to offer.

The delightful arrangements of the carefully-selected French Songs And Choruses included in this collection will make a perfectly French-flavoured addition to your general repertoire, or simply a complete concert in itself.

Please note that most of the lyrics are in French, but translations are included that also serve the purpose of enhancing your understanding of such poetic music.

      I bought this hoping to find material for the French choirs that I accompany on piano. They have such difficulty with English.
      To be honest, I don't really like any song in the book!
