Tune of the Day: En passant par la Lorraine

Traditional French tune

This French folk song is sung both as a nursery rhyme and as a drinking song. It first appeared in print in 1535, and some sources indicate that the music may have been composed by Orlande de Lassus, an important Franco-Flemish composer of the late Renaissance.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
