Originally premiered at Canada’s National Arts Centre (Ottawa) on Canada Day 2009 by the UNISONG Festival Massed Choir, this piece was inspired by the old merry-go-round in the Montmartre district of Paris.

LYRICS

C’est une chanson d’amour qui ne cessera pas,
C’est un amour éternel, qui durera tout le temps.
Tais-toi, mon ange, ne pleure pas:
Ton cœur conservera tous les rêves que tu as.

Ton cœur de soleil brille le jour et le soir.
Ton cœur te montrera le chemin de l’espoir.
Ton cœur, mon ange, ne mentira pas.
Écoute, ne dis rien, et la joie te viendras.

La-da-ra-da-ra, etc.

translation

This is a song of love that will never end
About an eternal love that will endure.
Be still, my angel, don’t you cry:
Your heart will guard all the dreams that you have.

Refrain: 

Your heart of sun shines all day and all night:
Your heart will show you the pathway of hope.
Your heart, my angel, will not lie to you.
Be still, say not a word, and joy will come to you.

La-da-ra, etc.
