​Dear all,

I am looking for the English translation of the lyrics of “Chants d'Auvergne” by Joseph Canteloube (1879-1957).

Any information would be most appreciated.

Many thanks.

Here you are:

Another source:

These don't include translations of all the songs, but I believe the ones most often performed and recorded are there.

I expect the insert for vol. 1 of the Naxos recording has what you want, but I don't find it online.

Hi, Danny!

Dame Kiri Te Kanewa recorded a complete set of the Chants d'Auvergne for Decca about three decades ago: the 2 CD set is available now on amazon for $3.98 and contains the translations of all the songs, I'm sure.

Thanks for doing the research for me. I couldn't find Volume 1 of Naxos either.

Thanks for the recommendation. I will buy the CD.
