This edition contains three pieces: La Biche (The Doe), Puisque tout passe (Since all things pass), and Un Cygne (A Swan).  The poems by Rainer Maria Rilke are from Vergers (1924-1925). 

The fluid rhythms and voluptuous harmonies of these lovely choral settings are reminiscent of Hindemith’s Six Chansons, but these settings of the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke’s original French poems provide a fresh musical approach to the melodious texts.  Medium difficulty.
