This page contains music files for each piece of music to be sung at a particular event. Each music file plays all voices but the Tenor 2 voice is enhanced.

Click on the piece you want to play and the music will start. The small arrow on the left of the play bar will change to two vertical bars and you can click on this to pause the music if necessary. Volume can be changed by sliding the light coloured bar on the right of the main bar just after the small speaker icon.

I can’t find a decent translation of Voici le soir online so here it is:

Voici le soir (Night has come)

Voici le soir;                                                                                             Night has come;
pendant tout un jour encore je vous ai beaucoup aimees            for one whole day again I’ve loved you so much
collines emues                                                                                      stirring hills
C’est beau de voir                                                                                  It’s beautiful to see
Mais: de sentir a la doublure des paupieres fermees                   but: to feel in the lining of closed eyelids
La douceur d’avoir vu  . . . . . . .                                                             the sweetness of having seen . . . . . . .

There is also this video on how to pronounce the above:
