Subject: Lyr Add: FRÈRE JACQUES; MAUDIT SOIS-TU?; etc.
From: Charles
Date: 08 Oct 97 - 07:25 AM

Hi, some popular French canons. See the explanation here of how to sing these. Being musically challenged, I can't write the tunes for you. But some of those are very familiar (ahem. To French ears that is), so you may have heard them at school etc. Some time I'll prepare a tape.

Frère Jacques, frère Jacques
Dormez-vous, dormez-vous
Sonnez les matines, sonnez les matines,
Ding-din-don, Ding-din-don.

Maudit sois-tu carilloneur,
Que Dieu créa pour mon malheur
Dès le point du jour à la cloche il s'accroche
Et le soir encor carillonne plus fort
Quand sonnera-t-on la mort du sonneur? (bis)
    "Le carillonneur" for "Maudit sois-tu carillonneur..."(Click to play)

Londres flambe (London Burns)
Londres flambe, Londres flambe,
Quelle affaire, quelle affaire,
Au feu, Au feu,
Plus d'eau, rien à faire!
    tune: "London's Burning"

Vent frais, vent du matin,
Vent qui souffle au sommet des grands pins,
Joie du vent qui souffle, Allons dans le grand...
    tune: "Hey ho anybody home"

Ego sum pauper,
Nihil habeo,
Cor meum dabo. I am poor, I have nothing, I will give my heart
    "Ego sum pauper" (Click to play)

Matelot, puisqu'il fait bon vent, Poussons ce soir la chansonette
Matelot, puisqu'il fait bon vent, Montons tous chanter sur l'avant
Et le chant du gaillard d'avant montera jusqu'à la dunette,
Et le chant du gaillard d'avant égaiera tout le bâtiment .
    "Matelot puisqu'il fait bon vent" (Click to play)

C'était au clair de lune, sur le clocher jauni,
Sur le clocher la lune, comme un point sur un i
O-la-lai di-ri-i O-la-la-ai di-ro, O-la-lai di-ri-i O-la-lai di-ro
    Ballade à la lune" = "C'était dans la nuit brune (Click to play)

Un gai-luron des Flandres, s'en vint en Wallonie,
S'en vint, s'en vint en Wallonie
Pour y chanter des fables, des fables de son pays la-la-la la la, la la la-la-la la la,
des fables de son pays
Et vient qui veut l'entendre, entendre de ses chansons la-la-la la la, la la la-la-la la la
Entendre de ses chansons.
    "Gai luron des Flandres" (Click to play)

Hope I haven't garbled the html. Enjoy, Charles

Orléans Beaugency etc. is about Joan of arch... Aargh! I can't remeber the rest of it!

Anyway, nice to hear from people that speak something other than English. Joe Offer's already pointed out to me that in English canons are called rounds and there are lots in the DB. What's the English version of London burns?

I remember a round in Swedish!

Midnatt röder tyst det här i husen,
Tyst i husen,
Alla söver, täker äro jusen,
Äro jusen,
Tip tap, tip tap, tipe tipe tip tap, tip, tip, tap (bis)

At least I think that's right. Calle, help us!

I'd grown up on a round in English:

All things shall perish from under the sky.
Music alone shall live, music alone shall live,
Music alone shall live, never to die.

And then a net friend pointed out that it's originally German and kinda well-known. I've lost that message; anyone have the German words?

Music Alone Shall Live is in the database in both German and English (with the tune).

We have fifty or more rounds entered, and several hundred waiting to be entered. I've been holding off on adding any more unless I can find the tune; rounds sort of work better with tunes, as the lyrics tend to be limited.

I remember it now:

Mes amis que reste-til,

It describes the state of France (the towns left to the heir, "Dauphin") in Joan of Arch's time. French folklore has a lot of stories about what she's supposed to have said.

Subject: Lyr Add: LES VIOLES FREDONNENT
From: Charles
Date: 25 Nov 97 - 11:31 AM

A school favourite, I heard Spanish and German versions so there's got to be one in English. Each of the voices is a type of instrument in a small orchestra. It can be sung as a round, but it doesn't have to.

strings
Les violes fredonnent, frissonnent et puis s'envolent,
Les violes fredonnent, les violes et les violons.
woodwinds
La clarinette, la clarinette, fait dou-a dou-a dou-a dou-a net'
La clarinette, la clarinette, fait dou-a dou-a dou-a dou-a da...
brass
La trompette rouspète, ta-ra ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta,
La trompette rouspète, ta-ra ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta!
percussions
Quant à la cymbale, elle n'a que deux notes,
sol do, sol do, sol sol sol sol sol sol sol do...

Still musically challenged, but tape's in the making. Enjoy. Charles :-)

Subject: Lyr Add: THE VIOLIN'S SINGING
From: Jon W.
Date: 25 Nov 97 - 04:50 PM

Wow, Charles, you struck a "chord" in my memory. We used to sing the orchestra song when I was a Scout (our scoutmaster was crazy about vocal music). The English version as I remember it:

The violin's singing, such lovely ringing,
The violin's singing, a lovely song.

The clarinet, the clarinet, goes doodle doodle doodle det,
The clarinet, the clarinet, goes doodle doodle doodle day.

The trumpet is sounding, tara ta ta tara ta ta ta ta,
The trumpet is sounding, tara ta ta tara ta ta ta ta.

The horns, the horns, they sound so forlorn,
The horns, the horns, they wake me up morns.

The drums play in two tones and always the same tones,
Five one, one five, five five five five one.

The tune is different for each verse. We assigned parts for each boy, sang a verse solo, then the first two together, then built incrementally until all five parts were being sung together. At least that's what was supposed to happen, but we never really got it all together that I remember.

I know this song in Portuguese. I grew up in NorthEast Brasil and most likely one of the missionaries translated it into Portuguese! It is a great song to make an instant choir! We had a Reunion in the summer of 2000 in Brasil for the high school that I attended, and singing this song together one evening brought back delightful memories!! ... and we sounded really good, of course! ;o) ---------------

Here are the words in Portuguese as I can remember them... they may closely resemble a Spanish version, as the two languages are very close!

Violin: O violino soando tao suave, parece assim que deseja cantar (repeat)

Clarinet: A clarineta, a clarineta vai du du - du du - du du - du du de' (repeat)

Trumpet: A trombeta prateada, vai ta-ta-ta-ra-ta-ta-ta-ra-ta-ta!! (Repeat)

Timpani (Kettle drums): O timpano toca sempre dois tons, E'este ou este, sao sempre dois tons.

Tuba: A Tromba soa, solenimente, solenimente, trompe a soar.

The orchestra song is more than just a childrens' verse - the music allocated to each instrument is very typical of the way those instruments are used in the orchestra and the song is a wonderful aid - I've used it to teach elementary orchestration to young students.

Canons and glees. I'm thinking of things like the one (c.1770) whose text is quite innocuous as a poem - the poet says how he wants to be buried in a country churchyard. But the musical setting does a whole lot of canonic imitation on the syllable before the "-ry".

I don't know any -which doesn't mean there isn't. Check this site. It's a bawdy songs site. (bawdy songs = chansons paillardes)
What you say about the text makes me think of "Pinaud curé" -you can find it spelled Pineau, Pinot...- the first line of each verse is quite normal but when you take a short part of it in the middle (which is the 2nd line) it's quite another story

Le Carillon de Vendôme, as 'Orleans' has been sung by Dave Crosby and can be heard at:
http://68.178.184.142/link/David_Crosby/Orleans.mp3

It is really good and eerie! (the mode and harmony are somewhat similar to the medieval 'Nobilis Humilis Martir' from Orkney.

Neither the lyrics nor the tune are the original in this version by Still & Nash. It is a brilliant 4 part harmony (including a drone)rather than a round, but has this cyclical feel to it.

I'm writing to see if anyone could submit (in ABC or otherwise) the score of all the parts of the original XIV century canon. Or any part harmony or round version of this 'Chime of Vendôme'?

This reminds me that we have one called "Le défilé" (The parade) or "L'orchestre"; you can hear a rendition there.

DRUMS
"Papa, Maman, mon ourson n'a qu'un ?il,
Papa, Maman, mon ourson n'a qu'un' dent,
Ra* que c'est embêtant d'avoir un ourson qui n'a qu'un ?il,
Ra que c'est embêtant d'avoir un ourson qui n'a qu'un' dent"

(Daddy, Mommy, my teddy bear has only one eye
Daddy, Mommy, my teddy bear has only one tooth,
Ra, how annoying to have a teady bear that has only one eye,
Ra, how annoying to have a teady bear that has only one tooth)


*Ra, argh... whatever sounding like a drum roll

TRUMPETS
Oui, mon papa l'a dit,
Et ma maman aussi.
Et mon papa m'achètera une jolie trompette,
Et mon papa m'achètera une trompette en bois.

(Yes, my daddy said so,
And my mommy also.
And my daddy will buy me a pretty trumpet,
and my daddy will buy me a wooden trumpet)


The lyrics for the drums have been "sanitized", the traditional version goes "un enfant" (a child), not "un ourson" (a teddy bear).
Since it's supposed to be a parade passing by, you start with the drums alone, talking low then louder and louder then lower and lower. The trumpets can join in when the drums have said their verse a couple of times, first low, then louder etc... and they stop before the drums.

You can hear the drums included in a version of the Scouts song "Dans la troupe"

Roger, did you ever get the links to work? They work for me now (one year later).


Two tips for music in general:

Sometimes when a MIDI won't play with a left click, it will play if you right click instead, then Open in a New Window.

Sometimes if you have something minimized that uses sound, then that feature 'has dibs' on your speakers even though it's not playing anything, and the new item can't play.
