Donald Coakley has created a colourful and harmonically interesting arrangement of the French-Canadian folksong A la Claire Fontaine. Melodic material is found throughout the ensemble and none of the parts are technically difficult. As the piece progresses, variations in the melody and accompaniment are introduced to maintain interest and propel the work along.
