Frere Jacques (Round): a Children's Song - Sheet Music, midi & mp3 files

"Frere Jacques" is a traditional French nursery rhyme, and this is the Round version of the Song since it is frequently sung in this way. One child or group will start singing the melody, and then a second child or group will join in 2 bars later, and so on. If there are sufficent children or groups then four separate parts can continue to sing the round, each unit starting again at the beginning of the song after they have reached the end. The standard (non-Round) version of the song is available at this link: Frere Jacques.
