Prenant son Sabre de Bataille from Meyerbeer's Les Huguenots A Capella


I take on the challenge of singing Bois-Rosé's little yet under-appreciated aria from the third act of Giacomo Meyerbeer's Les Huguenots, which definitely needs a whole lot more love. Trust me when I say that singing this was akin to climbing Mount Everest, given that I have been doing and redoing this for about ten takes until I got to the one which I thought was all right. One should not be fooled by the size of Bois-Rosé's role, as his Rataplan is extremely demanding, especially with the backing of the chorus. And yes, I sang this solo, which proved to be even tougher. I hope you enjoyed my rendition of this short tenor aria, as flawed as it is.
