Tune of the Day: Ai vist lo lop

Traditional French folk song

“Ai vist lo lop” (“I saw the wolf”) is an old traditional Occitan folk song believed to date back to the 13th century. Occitan was historically the main language spoken in southern France, and it is sometimes still used, for the most part as a second language. Two versions of this song exist, one in the form of a 3/8-time bourrée and one in duple or quadruple meter. Both are still sung today, but the latter is more prevalent, and is also used as a nursery rhyme.
