This lovely carol comes from the Provence region of France where it is known as "Un Flambeau, Jeanette, Isabelle" (Bring a torch, Jeannette, Isabella). It is believed to date from the 17th century, possibly by Nicholas Saboly (1614-1675). Like many carols it tells a story. The best-known version is the translation by Edward Cuthbert Nunn (1868-1914) which begins:"Bring a torch, Jeannette, Isabella!Bring a torch to the cradle, run!It is Jesus, good folk of the villageChrist is born and Mary's calling:Ah! Ah! beautiful is the Mother Ah! Ah! beautiful is her Son!" The custom of acting out a scene beside the cradle of Jesus goes back to the middle ages. In southern Europe the torches, or candles, of Chanukah -- the Jewish Festival of Lights -- played an important part in Christmas celebrations. The carol should be played simply and with forward motion but without haste. Keep the tempo steady till the final measures and let it gradually fade out. - William Ryden Ensemble instrumentation: 10 Flute (one player Piccolo optional), 1 Oboe (optional), 1 Bassoon (optional), 6 1st Bb Clarinet, 6 2nd Bb Clarinet, 1 Eb Alto Clarinet, 1 Bb Bass Clarinet, 5 Eb Alto Saxophone, 1 Bb Tenor Saxophone, 1 Eb Baritone Saxophone, 4 1st Bb Trumpet, 4 2nd Bb Trumpet, 2 F Horn, 3 1st Trombone, 3 2nd Trombone, 3 Baritone B.C., 3 Baritone T.C., 4 Tubas, 1 Timpani, 3 Mallet Percussion (Bells, Xylophone, Chimes), 4 Percussion (Triangle, Tambourine, Crash Cymbal, Suspended Cymbal, Bass Drum).
