L'adieu des bergers
(The Shepherds' Farewell)
From 'L'enfance du Christ'

Composed by Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)

Arranged Paul Burnell 2012
For recorder orchestra S, S, A, A, T, T, B, B, GB, Cb


Performance tempos of the original composition are often slower than the published metronome mark of 50 beats per minute, typically resulting in a duration of around three to four minutes.

The orginal key is E major, but in this arrangement it has been transposed up a semitone to F Major.

If there is a single Contrabass recorder in the bars marked divisi the lower note should be played.



Programme note:

L'enfance du Christ is an oratorio by the French composer Hector Berlioz first performed in 1854. 'L'adieu des bergers' (The shepherds' farewell) was written as an organ piece in 1850. In the oratorio it appears in Part Two and is probably the most well-known movement, often performed separately.

A hauntingly beautiful choral piece by Berlioz, from his L'Enfance du Christ.
Here it is transposed for Piano and four recorder parts (Descant, Tenor, Alto, Bass).
Transposed from the original voice key of E-major to G-major, and parts simplified to remove awkward half-hole fingering for the recorder parts.
Some parts have alternative notes in light grey if they are out of reach.

Note that this PDF contains combined score for piano and all four recorder parts, plus individual parts for each separate recorder.

Il s’en va loin de la terre
Où dans l’étable il vit le jour.
De son père et de sa mère
Qu’il reste le constant amour,
Qu’il grandisse, qu’il prospère
Et qu’il soit bon père à son tour.

(English version by Paul England)
Thou must leave thy lowly dwelling,
The humble crib, the stable bare.
Babe, all mortal babes excelling,
Content our earthly lot to share.
Loving father, Loving mother,
Shelter thee with tender care!
