Notes & Reviews:

Our new opus is based on an educational musical composition intended for children in the 18th Century. It offers a totally fresh approach to the Fables, providing familiarity with the song versions of the fables while offering the audience a genuine fantasy, far beyond a mere musical illustration. La Fontaine's fables were intended for a large audience, and the titles we propose here were intended mainly for young people The principal interest of this collection resides in the nature of the work performed by Clrambault and his poet. The Fables of La Fontaine had not been intended to be set to music, thus a wondrous effort was required in order to produce a versification that would suit musical composition. However, the movement of the music implies a very concise versification, and one cannot but admire the work of the anonymous poet who nevertheless faithfully reproduces the original text. Original drawings by Thomas Carrere SING ALONG WITH CLRAMBAULT for parents and children to sing along with the harpsichord accompaniment of six of the Fables. The present recording is the reflection of an educational musical opus, specially intended for children in the 18th Century. It offers a totally fresh approach to the Fables, providing familiarity with the song versions of the latter.
