Description: Here is my ironic SATB arrangement in 5/4 of Victor Hugo’s remarkable poem “La coccinelle” (“The Ladybug). The narrator looks back on a moment in time when, as a teenager, he was preparing to kiss a girl. Unfortunately, a ladybug lands on her neck, however, which distracts him. He then removes the ladybug, but sadly the kiss flies off forever! Dedicated to Emma.
