★ Brother John History:

This simple French nursery rhyme is quite well known in English, and is often taught in elementary French, and in music lessons as a recorder tune. Literally “Brother John,” it is usually sung in French, and sounds better that way.

As with most traditional verse, its origin is uncertain; it seems likely that it was not set to music in the first instance. There are numerous variations on the lyrics, and countless translations. The earliest printed version of the melody dates from around 1780, as “Frère Blaise.” Unsurprisingly, “Frère Jacques” has been translated into many languages, from Afrikaans to Xhosa through Japanese.
