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.
