Traditional Brittany song arranged by Pierre Calmelet for unaccompanied 3-part mixed voices choir

This traditional song was extremely famous in Brittany and even throughout France some would say for fun. According to the legend, it was sung when Francis I of France was in Locminé in 1518. It alternates between a small soloist group singing the beginning of the verse and the choir taking it over. The energic and lively rhythm is similar to the Breton dance "An-Dro” where each holds another by the little finger. Pierre Calmelet’s arrangement can be performed by every choir. The three-part voices chorus is cleverly written in imitation between sopranos and male voices, which makes the learning easier.
