Tune of the Day: Dans la forêt lointaine

Traditional French tune

This miniature French song can be played as a canon for two or four voices, and it's quite fun played that way. The title can be translated as “In the Faraway Forest”. The tune is also known as “Coucou hibou” after the refrain, which in French has the double meaning of “Cuckoo, owl” and “Peekaboo, owl”.
