Lyrics

LyricsPoetic Translation
Resvelons nous, resvelons, amoureux Revel we now, revel each loving boy.
Alons au bois tantost cueillir le may, Into the woods to pluck the rose of May!
Et chanterons chascun un virelay, Sing in a chorus a sweet virelai
Pour sa dame, s'en serons plus joyeux. To please our loves, and be with them in joy.
Alons ent bien tos au may.Let's all go to greet the May!
Guillaume DufayCarol Anne Perry Lagemann
