I remember the melody but not the lyrics to a song that my sisters used to sing. It was called, “Orlean.” I’m not certain of the spelling, but they pronounced it, “or-LAY-ahn.” Does anybody know the rest of the lyrics?
Monique from Mama Lisa’s World en français was familiar with this song. It’s called Le carillon de Vendôme – Vendôme Chimes. Monique provided the lyrics, an English translation, the score, a recording and a midi. Click the link to see all of these.
