Soir d'octobre
Last updated: 04.09.21
Soir d'octobre (1963) written by André Ducret based on a poem by Emile Gardaz. is an a cappella SATB choiral piece. Scored Moderato in ¾ time it describes the atmosphere of an October evening and the poet's reflections, dreaming by his window whilst looking at nature, the fog, shafdows and half-light.
I came to Soir d'octobre when auditioning to join a small mixed Bremen group [Christian, Henner, Maja, Marlene] after my time in the Collegium Musicum Bremen. It was amongst 15 other SATB quartet pieces they put before me.
I have not been able to locate the arrangement's source and have therefore listed it in Geoff's Choral Odds and Ends..
