The centipede – Le Mille-Pattes – mezzo soprano, bassoon



Vocal/Instrumental duo (in quasi-canon style) based on my vocal duo on the Centipede and the Frog
(A Centipede was happy quite
Until a frog in fun
said “Pray tell which leg comes after which?”
This raised her mind to such a pitch
she lay distracted in a ditch
Considering how to run.)
This version, for mezzo soprano and bassoon also includes a French version,
since it was written especially for the “Fou de Basson” event in Angoulême.
