Quick Overview

Playful, jazzy and immensely fun to learn and sing, DesJardin's Babylon is based on the well-known rhyme "How Far is it to Babylon?". The text, rich with hidden meaning, is further accentuated by the playful meter of five along  with a clever melody  based on the Phyrgian mode. Teaching opportunities abound in this must-program piece!
