Two earwigs in one week and from the same youth orchestra? Why yes indeed – because they're very talented and because it made me smile, that's why. The players are the Orchestre à cordes des benjamins du Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Paris, conducted by Louis Fima at concert given on January 20th 2014. Enjoy :-).

Critics are often very snooty about film scores. God knows why, quite a bit of the twentieth centuries best music was composed for films. (Scroll forward to 0:03:33 if you want to dive right in without being bothered with the announcers intro). Enjoy :-)

This posting started out as my attempt to satisfy a simple request for the a capella version of 'In Memorian' from 'Les Choristes. It is the nature of grandchildren to escalate their demands and for doting grandparents to cave in … The upshot of this situation is that they (and you) get both.
'In Memoriam' is Bruno Coulais' setting of the Kyrie it's the 20th track on his sound track to the 2004 French film 'Les Choristes'. I like Coulais' music and I particularly like this piece it's sung in the film by the boys of the Petits Chanteurs de Saint-Marc. Or to put it another way trebles singing a rather beautiful piece of modern music with Descant. The descant is sung by Jean-Baptiste Maunier. You'll find the film in its entirety below the fold. It's worth your while watching in full-screen if you can.
