"Au Clair de la lune" has been long attributed to Lully (as specified in the edition of this arrangement by Fernand de la Tombelle) and its original text has been adapted many times (in particular the last verse deemed too dary).
The melody, by an anonymous 18th century composer, was quickly popularized to the point that it served as a support for other songs.
Among these, the New Collection of Spiritual Songs published in Amiens in 1819 publishes it with the following text (Song LXXVI: On the Bees):
Little bees, You ravish me;
Oh ! what wonders You reunite!
Your agility Is attached to the address,
this music was composed by Fernand de la Tombelle in 1903. It is written for two mixed voices and can be interpreted by two solo voices. Accompaniment on the harp can be substituted to the piano.
