Lé livret d’pièches – Festive anthology

Office du Jerriaisbooks, Fête Nouormande

J’avons r’chu à matîn eune boêtée d’livrets d’pièches pouor la Fête Nouormande.

We received this morning a boxful of the booklets that contain (most of) the texts to be performed at this week’s Fête Nouormande. The custom at the annual fête is to have a booklet so that the audience can follow the texts as sung/read/recited – it helps if you’re not familiar with all the varied accents – and that there’s a record especially of the new pieces, some written especially for the festival.
