R&R Chair Middle Level & Jr High

Madrigals are very accessible pieces for junior high and middle school voices and this is no exception. The French is fun to sing and the English translation is included. When I did this piece with my junior high choir, we sang it all the way through in French and then again in English. (It is not very long so it works well.) The arranger also wrote this piece in the key of E flat so that Part III has a six note range from F to D (around middle C.) There is a pronunciation key included. Have fun with this great French madrigal!
