Arrangement for flute solo and flute choir (4 flutes, alto flute and bass flute) of Debussy's song "Les Cloches" (originally written for soprano and piano). A version in French and English for solo tenor or soprano and choir is also available. The pdf file contains score and parts. The sound sample is an electronic preview. Here are the original words by Paul Bourget [English version see below] Les feuilles s’ouvraient sur le bord des branches, délicatement. Les cloches tintaient, légères et franches, dans le ciel clément. Rhythmique et fervent comme une antienne, ce lointain appel me remémorait la blancheur chrétienne des fleurs de l’autel. Ce cloches parlaient d’heureuses années, et, dans le grand bois, semblaient reverdir les feuilles fanées, des jours d’autrefois. The leaves unfurled on branches so lightly delicate and soft. The bells rang out so light and pure in the cloudless sky Rhythmical and fervent a distant call like the anthems of old Called to mind the pure white lilies on holy altar's sacrifice Those bells spoke to me of happier times now gone And in the great wood they seemed to revive the faded leaves of days long since passed. (singing translation (c) David W Solomons).
