I've just found (update: scrub the 'just':- it's been a while now) this youtube video: French-English Bilingual Voltaire Quotes, and as quality free bilingual French English text videos go, it's the squirrel's nuts.
Is This The Most Sublime French Language Song Ever?
UPDATE: JUST FINISHED A FREE FRENCH LESSON BASED ON THIS SONG.
Gael Lefevere, the guy responsible for introducing me to the real French music scene (As it happens, probably the best bombard player in the world and also a good friend of mine) had interpreted this traditional Breton song about two years ago with fellow musician Nicolas Quemener (a damn fine Celtic Guitarist.) Now, when I first heard it I remember thinking to myself that this is the most moving piece of French language music I had ever come across and told them to make it into a disc. What happened: nothing! They played it live two or three times at the tiniest of venues and that's it.
So, tired of waiting, I've decided to do something about it. I told Gael to stick it on youtube (bearing in mind, this is preproduction live recording) so that I could quickly put it on my site and make a Free French Lesson out of it; thus introducing it to an international audience.

Still, the rest of my site's actually quite good so please use to heart's content.

Also, a big thank you to weebly for creating a site builder instinctive, flexible and without bugs: This is as rare as rocking horse poo among free website builders and publishers: believe me, I tried quite a few of the others with sometimes disastrous results.
