Hi Tina, 

Thanks for pointing this out, you are quite right and it has now been corrected.

Bonne Continuation!

Hi Tina,

I don't think so.   Why? dont (of which -- complément d'object indirect) therefore "une chanson of the three" is an indirect object.

This is my understanding of the text.

Hope it helps.

I think you are right, Tina, and it should be écrite. The verb écrire takes a direct object, which, in this sentence, is que (referring to la chanson). Therefore, the participle needs to agree in number and gender with la chanson.
