Baradoz ar mor

— May 2024

Opus : 1 n°7 / Type d'œuvre : Pour voix et instrument(s)


The place about which Per-Jakez Helias writes, is an island to which sailors sail in order to find eternal rest. At the centre of this ballad of the lost, I have placed a lullaby for a newborn child, in reference to Pierre Loti’s beautiful novel, Pêcheur d’Islande.

The first recording below was made with the Maîtrise de La Perverie, conducted by Gilles Gérard.
The second one with the ensemble Territoires du souffle (unpublished).

Difficulty rating: moderate

Per-Jakez Helias


Mezzo, baritone, children’s choir and accordion

8 mins approx.
Work in three linked parts, the third being an amplified repeat of the first. The central part is a lullaby.
