Folk Music of France

From Angoumois to Orléans, this collection of Folk Music of France “remains the exact and faithful reflection of the different ethnic and language groups among which this folklore came to birth.” Often humorous, this collection is a running commentary on marriage with songs such as “Mon Père M’a Douné un Mari,” (My Father Gave Me A Husband) “La Malmariée” (The Bad Bride) and “La Chanson de la Mariée” (The Song of the Bride).
