Thread Name: Les Chansons de la France
Subject: RE: Les Chansons de la France
In about 1979, I was travelling in the Beaujolais region of France with my wine marketing company. At a early morning stop at Chateau de la Chaize, in Brouilly, we were entertained by a small boy, the son of the maitre de chais, who stood atop an upturned barrel holding a candle while singing a traditional song of the region. I cannot recall the song, but I remember how clear and pure his sound was and that he delivered it with great feeling. Does anyone know this or other such local or regional celebratory songs of France?
