The First Nowell (traditional tune) over accompaniment by Erik Satie (Gymnopédie No.1.) Two-part (equal) choir and piano.
The first Nowell the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
In fields where they lay tending their sheep,
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.
