[PDF] Anon. - Une Jeune Fillette

Post by Les Backshall » Thu Dec 17, 2009 5:54 pm

This is a simple arrangement I made of a lovely traditional french tune 'Une Jeune Fillette'. It was featured in the 1991 film 'Tous Les Matins du Monde' in an arrangement by Jordi Savall.

Hope you like it.

"Une jeune fillette
De noble coeur
Plaisante et joliette
De grande valeur
Outre son grès,
On l'a rendue nonette
Celui point de lui haicte
D'où vit en grande douleur
Son pauvre coeur soupire
Incessement
Aussi ma mort désire
Journellement
Qu'à mes parents
Ne puis mander n'éscrire
Ma beauté fort empire
Je vis en grand tourment"

Not sure it makes entire sense in modern French, but you get the general idea :)

Or in the Lingua Franca

A young girl of noble heart
agreeable, pretty and worthy,
against her will was made a nun,
and thus she lived in sadness.

My poor heart sighs incessantly
and I daily desire death.
I cannot write to my parents,
my beauty fades; I live in torment.


Not a happy story, really.

Thanks, Les. It is a lovely old tune, and one I'm very fond of, so it's great to have a guitar arrangement. I look forward to trying this.

Best wishes,

Geoff

:merci: I used to listen to the music from this moving film a lot. Here is the plot summary (intro ) from IMDB
It's late 17th century. The viola da gamba player Monsieur de Sainte Colombe comes home to find that his wife died while he was away. In his grief he builds a small house in his garden into wich he moves to dedicate his life to music and his two young daughters Madeleine and Toinette, avoiding the outside world. Rumor about him and his music is widespread, and even reaches to the court of Louis XIV, who wants him at his court in Lully's orchestra, but Monsieur de Sainte Colombe refuses. One day a young man, Marin Marais, comes to see him with a request, he wants to be taught how to play the viol.....
If anyone hasnt seen it , please do beg borrow or even buy it :shock: ; it is available online from ...er... the usual source

Oh that's beautiful thanks Les
:flowers:
Yes I saw the film as well, and now I really want to see it again.

Someone told me that although Depardieu isn't playing in the actual film, he did learn to play the viol!
[I've had some lessons on the bass viol, it was challenging but very satisfying eventually.]

:merci:
