Glass harp-Toccata and fugue in D minor-Bach-BWV 565

This is quite amazing to watch and to hear. Enjoy!

When I was in high school I belonged to a wonderful choir.  Our "signature song" was Madame Jeannette.  I recently started thinking about this song and through an internet search was able to find this wonderful recording sung by The Sanford H. Calhous High School Choir directed by S. Talbot Thayer in 1971 in Merrick, NY.  Enjoy!

Madame Jeanette

MP3 File

Music composed by Alan Murray & Lyrics by Edward Locton:

Madame Jeanette when the sun goes down
Sits at her door in the rush of the town
Waiting for someone each close of the day
Someone who fell at St. Pierre they say

Madame Jeanette when the stars shine bright
Sits at the window and looks through the night
Listening for someone to pass down the way
For someone who sleeps at St Pierre they say

Madame Jeanette she will wait there I know
'Til her eyes have gown dim and her hair's white as snow
Wait there and watch there 'til one of these days
They take her slumber to in Père-Lachaise
In Père-Lachaise
