A Chansonneur must be, not only a painter, with his voice, but a sculptor with a plastic art, a poet of the soul, and see beauty everywhere!
In St. Nicolas there are many kinds of voices to express by colors.
1.   The voice of the artist interpreting the song, which is neutral.
2.   The voice of the butcher, brown.
3.   The speaking voice of St. Nicholas, red, large, and posed in the grave register.
4.   The child's voice, a white voice.
LA LEGENDE DE SAINT NICOLAS
II 6tait trois petits enfants
Qui s'en allaient glaner aux champs.
S'en vont un soir chez un boucher: Boucher, voudrais-tu nous loger? Entrez, entrez, petits enfants, Y a d'la place assurement.
II 6tait, etc. lis n'6taient pas sit6t entres, Que le boucher les a tu6s ! Les a coupes en p'tits morceaux, Mis au saloir comme pourceaux !
II 6tait, etc. Saint Nicolas, au bout d'sept ans, Vint a passer dedans ce champ. II s'en allait chez le boucher : Boucher, voudrais-tu me loger?
II 6tait, etc.
