Le baylère

First line:
Pâtre, par delà l’eau
French song from the Auvernge
author of text

This song comes from a set of five arrangements of folksongs from the Auvergne region of South-west France. In the song two shepherds call to each other across a valley to say that all is well, and they can sleep in peace. Le baylère is best known in the version by Joseph Canteloube, from his Chants d’Auvergne.
