Discover Oser ... le Baroque , 14 pieces for choir with 3 mixed voices from the most famous of Baroque music, arranged by Pierre Calmelet :

« The repertoire for 4 mixed voices is inexhaustible and gives the choirs with this formation the possibility to constantly go off to discover new pieces, periods or different styles, for the greatest pleasure of the singers.
However, many choirs are lacking in male voices and are forced to confine themselves to a more limited repertoire, often far removed from the pieces appreciated in the usual choral repertoire.
By publishing this second collection, Éditions À Coeur Joie contributes to the enrichment of the choral repertoire for 3 mixed voices. From Bach to Pergolesi, Lully, Rameau, Handel, Aichinger, Purcell and Vivaldi, here are 14 little gems of the Baroque, a cappella or accompanied on the keyboard, made available to any choir wishing to get acquainted with some musical summits in this new formation.
It is for me a pleasure and an honour to deliver this work to you. I hope that in singing them, you will share the enthusiasm I had in arranging these works.
Taste, page after page, this splendid music and practice it without moderation! »
