2016 Choral Contest Entry

This now traditional French carol was written by Bernard de La Monnoye(1641-1728) and was first published in 1720. Its original title was “Guillô,Pran Ton Tamborin”. The carol centres on the birth of Jesus, and is told from the perspective of simplefolk playing simple instruments like flutes and drums. This unique andcaptivating mixed choir arrangement (SSATB acappella) successfully combines both traditional and modern choral elementsto inspire and challenge choirs. In line with the text, the vocal parts take onan instrumental role (drum and flute) in a series of interludes woven between thefour verses, while the underlying Bass ostinato gives a stylish, upbeatrhythmic flavour. A great piece for holiday concerts!
