I climbed up a mountain to see what I'd find taking me back in time pretty french houses valleys of gold watching the day unfold le puy en velay le puy en velay medieval faces le puy en velay pilgrims are on their way see the black madonna and the child with hope in her eyes she has the steepest climb le puy en velay le puy en velay le puy en velay le puy en velay le puy en velay le puy en velay

De tu ligera planta el curso Fenix rara para para mira que se adelanta en tan ligero ensayo a la nave a la cierva al ave al rayo El sol la luna las estrellas El sol la luna las estrellas Mas con ardor divino ya rompiendo las nubes subes subes y en solio cristalino besun tus plantas bellas el cielo el sol la luna las estrellas El sol la luna las estrellas El sol la luna las estrellas

bel aubepin 04:02
Bel aubépin, fleurissant, verdissant le long de ce beau rivage. Tu es vêtu jusqu'au bas des longs bras d'une lambrunche sauvage. Or vis, gentil aubépin, vis sans fin. Le chantre rossignolet nouvelet courtisant sa bien-aimée. Sur ta cime il fait son nid, gentil aubépin. Deux camps de rouges fourmis se sont mis en garnison sous ta souche. En ton pied demi-mangé, allongé les avettes ont leur couche. Or vis gentil aubépin, vis sans fin, vis sans que jamais tonnerre, ou la cognée, ou les vents,ou les temps te puissent ruer par terre. Lovely hawthorne tree, blossoming, flourishing along this beautiful shore. You are dressed all the way down to the end of your long arms with a wild vine. So live, beautiful hawthorne tree, live without end. The young nightingale singer is courting his beloved. On your peak he makes his nest, lovely hawthorne tree. Two camps of red ants have set up garrison under your trunk. In your half eaten foot, stretched out, the bees have their bed . So live beautiful hawthorne tree, live without end, live so that never thunder, or the axe, or the winds, or the times succeed in pulling you to the ground.

about

Le Puy en Velay is a 5 track mini album from Mishaped Pearls.

The album and title track takes its name from a beautiful town in France. Its medieval cobbled streets, houses and Notre Dame gothic Cathedral... yes, the one which was the lair of the Hunchback of Notre Dame (a fictional character who was transformed into a full length animated movie)....really do take you back in time!

Le Puy-en-Velay, the capital town of the Haute-Loire department in the Auvergne region of southern central France, is a town with a truly stunning setting. It lies at the feet of two dramatic extinct volcanoes, towering bare rocks which both dominate and define the city below.
