Jules Demersseman was born on January 9, 1833 in Hondschoote, a small town in the north of Francenow near the border of Belgium. He entered the Paris Conservatory in 1844 in the class of Jean-LouisTulou and won a first prize in flute in 1845. Demersseman had a career as a pedogogue and soloist, oftenperforming his own compositions. A close friend of Adolphe Sax, he wrote some of the first works everwritten for the saxophone, as well as for the saxhorn and for Sax‘s valved trombone, most of which werepublished by Sax himself.. Demersseman died in Paris on December 1, 1866 at the age of 33.Two versions of this work were published by the Adolphe Sax puublishing company: a version for voice andorgan and a version for voice with Alto Saxophone, Sax Valved Trombone and Bass Saxhorn, an interesting combinationwhich is perhaps not as easy to find as it was in Sax's showroom, where the piece was likely performed to show the qualitiesof Sax's instruments. These versions are also published by Musik Fabrik in seperate editions.This current version was arranged using the first edition of the trio version as its source, and the saxophone and voice parts remainessentially as in the original, with some editorial dynamic changes. The two part texture of the remaining voices has been augmentedto allow for a fuller sound. The endings of several phrases have been extended to provide a more logical musical development.
