Malicorne 4 is an album by Malicorne. It is sometimes called "Nous sommes chanteurs de sornettes" because the album is called "Malicorne" and that is the first track. For the first time electronic effects and synthesisers are heard on a few tracks. The final track in particular is a slightly crazy assemblage of medieval and modern instruments. "Daniel mon fils" is either a translation of the English folk song "Lord Randal", or the French equivalent of it. It was recorded and released in 1976. Running time 40 minutes 51 sec.
