Notes

*Monique wrote, "In this song, the 'veillées' are the meetings in the evening, after the meal, which were done during wintertime. People would meet each other in turn to spend the evening and do jobs that could not be done in the summertime when the days were longer and the weather more mild and they were busy in the fields."
