SATB choral arrangement of Marc-Antonie Charpentier's Joseph est bien marié (Kyrie from Messe de Minuit, pour Noël). Set to alternative words, as a short final choral piece (pre-encore) to a choral concert on a theme of love (Heart's Desire). A short concert introduction piece, also from Charpentier's Kyrie, arranged for piano, two flutes and choir, will be published soon by Fullscore Publishing. This would provide an intro and outro theme for the concert.


Now our story will be told - about how love is doth unfold -

Starting with our heart's desire - then a flame is set on fire -

Love and passion in their guises - turn our head with some surprises -

Let's make love our deepest joy - woman, man, girl and boy!


If you would like this piece in a different key, perhaps as an introduction to an encore in a different key, please email, specifying the key. We will endeavour to supply within 48hrs.


Look out also for publication soon of Fullscore Publishing's arrangement of Zelenka's Miserere - with new words, Vivi con passione - as an alternative introduction to Charpentier's Kyrie mentioned above, for a choral concert based on the the theme of love, Heart's Desire.

Heart's Desire (tune: Joseph est bien marié) ~ Charpentier
