Description
Arrangement for flute sextet (with piccolo) of my song based on my father's translation of Remi Belleau's poem "Avril"
The pdf file contains score and parts
The sound sample is an electronic preview.

April, the grace and smile that all beguile,
The tang and the sweet breath:
Perfume of Gods on high,
Who from the sky
Relish the scent of earth.


The courteous gentle
Who from exile summons the wanderers,
The forked swifts that skim their way
and seem of Spring the messengers.


May-flower and eglantine,
And verdant thyme, lilies and roses red
At this so beauteous tide,
Growing in pride
With lovely raiment spread.

April, the grace and smile
That all beguile,The tang and the
sweet breath: perfume of Gods on high,
who from the sky
Relish the scent of earth.

April!

after Remi Belleau

AVRIL
Avril, la grace, et le ris
De Cypris,
Le flair et la douce haleine:
Avril, le parfum des Dieux,
Qui des cieux
Sentent l'odeur de la plaine.

C'est toy courtois et gentil,
Qui d'exil
Retires ces passagéres,
Ces arondelles qui vont,
Et qui sont
Du printemps les messagéres.

L'aubespine et l'aiglantin,
Et le thym,
L'oeillet, le lis et les roses
En ceste belle saison,
A foison,
Monstrent leurs robes écloses.
Remi Belleau 1528-1577
