Learned from the singing of Emile & Marcelle Pessel of Plouhinec, Brittany, who were recorded live at a fest-noz (traditional Breton evening of music and dance) in 1961. It is sung as a conversation: a boy is outside a girl's window entreating her to come gather hazelnuts. They debate the issue, but in the end she decides to stay inside and pray for his soul. We acquired this song by ear (in the true oral tradition!) and are still seeking the lyrics and full translation.

If you have any information or can provide us with some or all of the lyrics please email us.
