Program Notes on À la claire Fontaine by (Anonymous) :

À la claire Fontaine [By The Clear Fountain] is a traditional French folk song which is especially popular in the French-speaking areas of Canada.

The song probably appeared as early as 1604, when the first permanent French settlements were established in Québec.

As is common with all traditional songs, there are many different versions of both the lyrics and the music of this song.

This score is an arrangement of À la claire fontaine for viola with piano accompaniment.

It is set in the key of D Major, modulating to G Major.

The viola part is appropriate for Grade 1 viola students.

It is to be played in the first and third positions, on the D string.

À la claire Fontaine

À la claire fontaine, m'en allant promener,
J'ai trouvé l'eau si belle que je m'y suis baigné.
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai.

Sous les feuilles d'un chêne je me suis fait sécher;
Sur la plus haute branche un rossignol chantait.
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai.

Chante, rossignol, chante, toi qui as le coeur gai;
Tu as le coeur à rire, moi, je l'ai à pleurer.
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai.

J'ai perdu mon amie sans l'avoir mérité,
Pour un bouton de rose que je lui refusai.
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai.

Je voudrais que la rose fût encore au rosier,
Et que ma douce amie fût encore à m'aimer.
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai.
