Frère Jacques

A French Cannon and Nursery Rhyme

Frère Jacques, is a French song that France’s Bibliothèque Nationale estimates that it was printed between 1775 and 1785.

The song is about a monk, brother Jacob, who has overslept and is urged to wake up and sound the bells for the matins, the midnight or very early morning prayers for which a monk would be expected to wake.
