Facetious cows, studious snails, teaching ravens, adorable cats and snow-white mouses interact with one another in Maurice Carême’s poems.
These nearly human creatures are loved by children as well as grown-ups without being mushy.
The harp player is not just an accompanist; he adds enchanting and puckish aspects to the harmony of these tonal or modal songs. However, it can also be performed on the piano.
The 2-parted vocal parts can be performed by beginners.
It can be sung by two women soloists or by an unaccompanied choir, the aim is to obtain a kind of vocal purity.
It would be completely all right to add some read texts about childhood and animals between the four songs of the collection.
This teaching sheet is sold individually as it is intended for children, and a single purchase for the teacher/choirmaster is quite feasible. We encourage you to buy the right number of sheets if you wish to involve your students.
