Description

4 part Canon by Orlando di Lasso arranged by David Warin Solomons


Performed in the video by the Strasbourg singers in 1976


Dis-moi, beau printemps,
pour qui sont ces fleurs et ces chansons,
La lune blanche dans l'étang,
Les nids blottis dans les taillis ?
[De ta beauté, de tes parfums ne nous lassons.]*

English singing translation:
Tell me, lovely Spring,
Now whom are these flowers and songs for?
The white moon shining in the pool
The nests are hidden in the woods
[Let us not tire of your beauty and perfumes.]*

(*The last line was not included in the old edition that we were using, but the score here contains the whole piece)
