The Carnival of the Animals
This set of verses for Saint-Säens’ Carnival of the Animals was commissioned by Pro Musica, Bangkok, for their performances of
the work in Bangkok, Thailand, in September 2019. I am happy to make them freely available for performance to any ensemble that might
like to use them. Please, however, credit me as the author and, if possible, provide a link to this website.
You may find videos of our September 2019 performance here.
