Sheet Music: Score
Chanson de Ronsard / Gerald Glynn.
by Gerald Glynn (1974)
The title of this work is significant in two ways: first, it is a reference to and an echo of the medieval poem Chanson de Roland; second, it is a setting of the first four stanzas of the poem Chanson from the first book of Sonnets pour Hélène by the poet Pierre de Ronsard (1524-1585).
There are no barlines in the score but small notches, one per second, mark the flow of time. One of the singers has maracas, the other has claves, which they play between stanzas of the poem, interacting with the percussionist.
In 1976, Chanson de Ronsard, was chosen as one of the works to represent Australia at the ISCM Music Days, held at Boston, Mass., to mark the US Bicentenary Celebrations.
