Composer's Notes

Inspired by Serbian folklore and influenced by Serbian vocal tradition, this piece pays homage to the ancient legend of the beauty of the voices of the Sirens. The text reveals a sense of humour not normally associated with Sirens, establishing them as six very mischievous Canadian divas who have a particular fascination with word play, which includes English words that have found their way into the Quebecois vocabulary. Six voix pour sirènes/Six voices for Sirens is based on a text by Nathalie Mamias.
