Item Number: TC.TC-166

Ronde du crepuscule, first published in 1909, is a fine example of the effortless, buoyant charm which characterizes Chaminade's music. The text tells the story of the fairy Queen Mab and her unnamed lover, kissing at twilight at the edge of the wood. Attendant elves dance and sing praises of their love. The choral parts are easy, the soaring solo is just made for a soprano who loves to get up on a "g" and hold it, and the ripply piano part is showy without being terribly difficult. This piece is a treat for you and your choir. SSAA, soprano solo, and piano; French; 12 pages, plus translation and historical notes; duration: 4:30 min.; range: g to f#'' (solo to g"); difficulty: easy.
