La compil'

(Code: A135300078)

This is a collection of 77 songs for children’s choirs of one, two and three voices. You can add instrumental accompaniment.
Since the beginning of the 70’s, the Éditions À Coeur Joie published a series of practical guidebooks entitled “Ma chanterie et Cantilènes.” They are choral anthologies and they were very useful because at that time, only school choirs possessed a repertoire, which was composed of religious songs. Marcel Corneloup and Christian Wagner composed songs coming from pop music or arranged songs, sometimes being helped by composers and arrangers. They helped renewing repertoires and choral practice of the youth in France.

A CD for learning is available (optional but cannot be sold alone)

Discover the Compil', a collection of 77 pieces for children's choir for one, two and three voices a cappella or with accompaniment:

Since the beginning of the 1970s, Éditions À Coeur Joie has published a series of practical notebooks, Ma Chanterie and Cantilènes, true anthologies of choral singing for children at a time when the entire repertoire had yet to be created.
Indeed, only the children's choirs of the manecaneries had a repertoire from the great religious tradition.
Drawing from the popular repertoire, harmonized songs or soliciting composers and arrangers for original creations, Marcel CORNELOUP and Christian WAGNER really initiated this revival of the repertoire and choral practice of young people in France.

Anne-Marie Cabut tell us :

"...As its name indicates, the Compil' offers a selection of 77 pieces a cappella or with accompaniment, tried and tested successfully for many years with children's choirs.
Mainly taken from the collection Ma Chanterie which offers 14 volumes and 228 titles, these musical miniatures were written or arranged by renowned musicians, composers and teachers who have had the permanent concern to be in adequacy with the tastes and the capacities of young choristers since the fifties.
In addition to pieces chosen from the collections of Ma chanterie, others come from various sources, including the Cantourel collection for our youngest choristers (from 5 years old).
Here is a magnificent musical palette offered to choirs of all levels: unison, two easy voices, and three equal voices, without forgetting the canon, a marvellous gateway to the practice of polyphony.
I wish all those who will take hold of this beautiful work a sparkling discovery or a moving rediscovery of songs that have marked generations of children.

La Compil', a heritage of freshness and simplicity that continues today in many children's and teenage choirs. »
