Written for the choir of Romsey Abbey in 2005, this carol uses a simple French traditional melody from the Auvergne region. The English translation is by the celebrated hymn writer Fred Pratt Green. The charming melody is adorned by a colourful organ part that reflects the joy and wonder of those assembled to witness the incarnate child-God and the festive ending explodes in a paean of praise!
