Kimberlee Hicks wrote asking for help finding a record from her childhood. Here’s her email:
In the early 80’s, my mother checked a record out of the library that had songs with both French and English lyrics. There were two voices, male and female. Some of the songs I remember include (and forgive me if I only have lyrics instead of names):
– The Shepherdess Song (“Hurry your lambs was”) both English and French.
– Little Ship, or Away, Away (“There was a ship that went a’sailing”) English
– The Bridge to Avignon (“All are dancing, all are dancing…”) English and French
– and I honestly only remember a fragment of one that went “My sheep! My sheep!” Something about dancing and then piping my sheep.
I know this is a long shot but I would love to know what this album was and find it again for myself and my mother. I’m guessing it’s anytime through the 60’s-80’s?
Any thoughts you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
If anyone can help with info about this album, please let us know in the comments below…
Thanks! Mama Lisa
