Morten Lauridsen's lyrical settings of Rainer Maria Rilke's Les roses have become part of mainstream choral repertory.

        These are absolutely wonderful, although the tempo variations associated with Lauridsen will prove challenging. Having performed these a few times now the audience really love them. Arriving at the end of the fourth song to sing the accompanied Dirait-on always sends a frisson of excitement waiting to see whether we had stayed in tune for the first four. I hope you enjoy performing these as much as we have.

        Oeuvres très intéressantes d'un niveau élevé; l'attribution des paroles aux notes n'est pas judicieuse et demande des corrections.
