This short, comic and amusing vocal quintet will have your audiences laughing as the singers enact the story of the five birds trying to have a choir rehearsal. They are late arriving for the rehearsal and then argue all the way through about who should conduct and who is the best singer. Humorous and Suitable for all age groups. [*Rab' translates correctly as Raven however for the English translation the word crow has been utilised in order to maintain the rhythm and flow of the music] Johanna Kinkel wrote this work when she was just 19 years old and it was published a few years later after it was performed again at a birthday party in the von Arnim house in Berlin.
