For children choir, soprano solo and accompaniment, CHANTS DE LA VIEILLE FRANCE is a work written by Dimitri Tchesnokov, after Julien TIERSOT's collecting work, who has transcribed the songs and melodies of french traditionnal songs from the 13th until the 17th century and realized some harmonizations.
Melodies and texts are faithfully those of Julien Tiersot's transcription.
Some elements of the harmonization have been kept in the present work by Dimitri Tchesnokov.
Three versions (choir part is identical) :
Choir and piano
Choir and brass quintet
Choir and Brass-Band
