Suggested Uses(s)

For SATB Choir, Flute and Organ. An easy and highly fetching arrangement of the familiar French carol, Un flambeau, Jeannette, Isabelle, with a wonderful flute obligato. In the carol, visitors to the stable have to keep their voices down so the newborn can enjoy his dreams. To this day in the Provence region, children dress up as shepherds and milkmaids, carrying torches and candles to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve while singing the carol.

Bring a torch, Jeanette, Isabella,
Bring a torch and quickly run.
Christ is born, goof folk of the village,
Christ is born, and Mary's calling;
Ah, ah, beautiful is the mother,
Ah, ah, beautiful is the son.

Quiet all, nor waken Jesus,
Quiet all and whisper low.
Silence all and gather around him,
Talk and noise might waken Jesus;
Hush, Hush, quietly now he slumbers,
Hush, hush, quietly now he sleeps.

Come and look within the stable,
Come and see the holy one.
Come and see the lovely Jesus,
White his brow, his cheeks are rosy;
Hush, Hush, quietly now he slumbers,
Hush, hush, quietly now he sleeps.
