'Frere Jacques'

Composer (Personal)

"Frère Jacques" in English sometimes called "Brother John" or "Brother Peter", is a French nursery melody. The song is traditionally sung in a round. This is continued until the singers decide to stop.

The original French version of the song is as follows:
Frère Jacques, frère Jacques,
Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous?
Sonnez les matines! Sonnez les matines!
Din, dan, don. Din, dan, don.

Here is a version of the song for those busy parents out there. Song and vocal tracks mashed with GarageBand. A big thanks to Kathy and Bruce for their fantastic vocal.


There's a problem. Process html need to be turn off.
