This is a score for a three-part mixed group, composed with the famous text of the poem “Que sont mes amis devenus” written by Rutebeuf. He was a 13th century French minstrel who wrote fabliaux, funeral laments and pieces like “Le Miracle de Théophile.” Jean-Jacques Massé harmonized version which remains similar to the one Léo Ferré realized. Jean-Jacques Massé has used an overlapping system with melody split between three desks. As a result, the writing is more contrapuntal than harmonic. He was part of Radio-France choir school, and then he studied at Conservatoire National Supérieur, Paris in harmony. He is now teaching musical education in middle school. He has written many arrangements for equal-voice choir and mixed-voice choir he has conducted. Jean Michelet also harmonized this song as a part-song (ref. ACJ 022).
