French Baguetelles For Cello is a collection of French pieces arranged for Cello by Mark Tanner.
Although there are certainly serious overtones to one or two pieces, there is a healthy dollop of silliness to lighten the mood.
Apart from Sur la Pont d'Avignon, which was reportedly written in the 15th century, Frère Jacques, which was a popular 18th century song, and Tambourin, which was in all probability also written in the 18th century (Gossec did however live well into the 19th century), all of the pieces come from composers who lived in the Romantic period.
