This lovely French Canadian folk song translates, “Let us leave, the sea is beautiful.” This setting is the beautiful story of a father who went out to fish in the night and returned before dawn. A fisherman’s love for the sea is celebrated in quiet reflection of this beautiful night. Your middle school choirs will enjoy learning and performing the French language.
