WARNING you will definitely have an ear worm after listening to this song. It will be stuck in your head all day!
I'm not sure about elsewhere but every Canadian school child learns this song.
The bridge was renowned as a marvel of construction. Twenty-two arches spanning 915 meters / 3,000 feet made quite an impression on the medieval observer. Secondly, it was associated with a miracle. A young shepherd called Bénezet heard the voice of God telling him to build a bridge across the Rhone. Then to prove that it was God, he picked up a huge boulder – so heavy that thirty strong men couldn’t move it. It was declared a miracle and the devout started making pilgrimages to see the bridge. Its fame spread far and wide – throughout France and beyond.
I know this song, thank you for a lovely ear worm :)ReplyDelete
...a great earworm tune, but in my neck of the woods it was never a part of my music education. Thanks Jackie for sharing this catchy tune.ReplyDelete
