Gemstar 21/05/2021: Eleanor

This morning's Gemstar is Eleanor who takes Glockenspiel lessons with Ste. Did you know Frère Jacques was a real person? Well that's one theory.

There are a number of others, you can find them all online. A good starting page is Wikipedia, ( but before you go sing along.

Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques

Dormez-vous, Dormez-vous

Sonnez les matines, Sonnez les matines

Ding, dang, dong, Ding, dang, dong The song concerns a monk's duty to ring the bell for matines. Frère Jacques has apparently overslept, it is time to ring the bells for matins, and someone wakes him up with this song.

Eleanor has worked very hard to achieve this fantastic rendition of this well known round.

Eleanor has lessons on the glockenspiel with Ste. If you would like to learn an instrument but are not sure which one will work for you call us on 0161 303 9966 or email and book a general taster session to try a few different ones until we find what is right for you.
