This sheet music is one of those which were ordered by ACJ of Lyon for the Choeurs en creation project. It was performed by 800 choristers (children and adults) on November 5, 2004 in Halle Tony Garnier, Lyon. Five young composers from Création Musicale XXI association played instruments for Choeurs en creation. They had studied at Conservatoire de Lyon or musicology at Lumière University Lyon 2, then working together with choirmasters who participated to this project, they composed and arranged the specific works for every choir (adults, teenagers or children). All of those works have in common to be based on Olivier Tanguy’s poems (1965-1993). He wrote more than 400 works and many prose texts which were published in “Interventions à haute voix” and “Les cahiers de la poésie” reviews. Jean-Pierre Huguet published a complete version of his works in Saint-Julien-Molin-Molette, Loire. “À la bonté du monde” can be performed in many ways; for example with a homorhytmic chorus performed following the notes written, a canon with two beginnings, a three-choir canon, but also with several voices joining and gathering at fermatas (like they do in pierre Calmelet’s “Alleluia,” ref. ACJ 5088). However, length is not timed, contrary to what Knut Nystedt recommended in “Immortal Bach.” A soloist, a sopranos group, or a children group can hold the beautiful verses. La Cigale in Lyon performed the soloist part for the creation, but it can also be improvised like it’s suggested in the 2nd verse. Régis Harquel was born in 1976 and studied music at École Nationale de Bourgouin-Jallieu. He studied piano, musical training, analyzing, and composing. He learned conducting and studied it at ENM de Villeurbanne, while he studied musicology and learning how to become a professor at Lumière University Lyon 2. He holds a secondary-school teaching diploma and a degree in musical education and choral singing since 2001.
