Final (Eric Noyer)
This cantata is intended to be performed by two mixed voices or two equal voices, one or several narrators and being accompanied on the piano. The text is based on middle ages stories.
Notes and words are intertwined and bring characters of the “Roman de Renart” to life: the wolf Ysengrin, the rooster Chanteclerc, the raven Tiécelin, fishmongers, chickadees, the king Noble, etc.
Each story is composed like a musical duet between Renart and the character he meets. Reynard can’t help taking advantage of all situations. Even when he fails, he always has more than a few up his sleeve. Complaints and enemies are gathering, and the hour of his trial will strike soon.
It approximately lasts one hour.
