Arrangements & Compositions


Ah, Si Mon Moine Voulait Danser is a lively traditional Québécois song arrangement with piano for a developing SAB choir by Gerda Blok-Wilson. This arrangement features changing boys voices. The rhythmic selection describes a young woman who wants a monk (the word also can mean a spinning top) to dance. She offers him a cap, a gown, etc., then a psalter; he rejects each because he has taken a vow of poverty. The piece will be a favourite for both singer and audience. Great festival selection! The recording is by the Prince George Bel Canto Choirs.
