Details about D'ou viens-tu, bergere? |  Associated sheet music


The song D'où viens-tu, bergère? [Whence art thou, my maiden?] is a popular French Canadian Christmas carol probably originating from France.

It takes the form of a dialogue between a shepherdess (who has witnessed the miracle of the Nativity) and her friends who ask her many questions.

This Christmas carol is sung in many European countries and was brought to Canada in the 17th century.

It has since become a great perennial favorite.

In his aforementioned book, Ernest Myrand writes that this song is une délicieuse berceuse où la naïveté du dialogue le dispute à la candeur de la mélodie, ce qui lui donne un cachet exceptionnel de tendresse et de suavité.

[a delightful lullaby to which a naive dialogue and an ingenuous melody bring exceptional tenderness and suaveness].
