1) Thanks, Andre, I look forward to that version. I am assuming that it was an "art song" before it found its way to Joan Baez.
2) Thanks, Murray, I don't need a translation... (does ad mauseam mean sung to a mouse?) 3) Thanks, Dick -- as soon as it said "Qu'on" instead of "qu'un" , and "tant qur" instead of "tant que" I assumed that it was a phonetic copy from someone for whom (as emily said) French was not their language. So what did the original look like? I will be interested to see what Andres' teachers' version looks like.
un grand plaisir comme toujours,
, yours, Peter T.
