If you have not experienced this well-known piece with either your treble ensemble or your advanced mixed choir, I highly recommend that you do so. It is nothing short of an adrenaline rush for both you and your singers. The SS and the SATB versions of this French folk song are quite different, but both have the same essential compositional elements. The French text seems like a lot; however, I am always amazed at how quickly students will learn language. It is well worth your time. *Please note: You will need a professional accompanist. This piano part is very difficult.*
