Ottawa choir, The Stairwell Carollers, sing an ode to birdsong with "Le chant des oyseaux" - written by Clément Janequin.

I love singing this one! So much fun -- and so challenging too!

  1. Added some sheet music to illustrate the vocal work. Also corrected the wrong podcast track.

  2. Hi Holly,

    Small correction: the song we're working on in the audio clip is "A little pretty bonny lass" - also a good one!



You can also email your questions to me - info (at) stairwellcarollers (dot) com.
