Tune of the Day: Nous n'irons plus au bois

Traditional French folk song

The melody of this 18th-century folk song appears to have been inspired by the first notes of the Kyrie from the old Missa de angelis (Mass of the Angels).

The famous French composer Claude Debussy used this tune in at least four of his works, from his song “La Belle au bois dormant”, through the third of his 1894 Images and “Jardins sous la pluie” from Estampes, to “Rondes de printemps” from the orchestral Images.
