Jules Émile Frédéric Massenet (1842 –1912) was an eminent and exceptionally prolific French composer of the Romantic period.  His arias and songs are appreciated for being highly melodic and imbued with expression and emotional intimacy.  His composition ON DIT!, first published in 1901, is a musical setting of the eponymous poem by Jean Roux in which the poet ponders how the word "love" is commonly and inevitably associated with the sweetness and delights of spring.  In addition to the vocal line and piano accompaniment, Massenet provided ON DIT! with a prominent part for cello.  The cello line can be readily adapted for clarinet, creating a lovely and suitable new version of the piece for clarinet, voice, and piano.  The new Noteworthy Sheet Music edition of ON DIT! includes a score in concert pitch, as well as individual parts for either A-clarinet or B-flat-clarinet transcribed from the original cello part.  Clarinetists in possession of both A and B-flat instruments may develop a personal preference for playing this piece on one instrument over the other, based on tone quality, complementarity with a particular singer's sound, etc..  For additional information and to view a preview page of the score, visit the listing page on the Noteworthy Sheet Music website at https://noteworthysheetmusic.com/score-descriptions/59-voice/958-massenet-on-dit-trans-clarinet-voice-and-piano.
