This French carol from the seventeeth century or earlier is well known as the hymn Let all mortal flesh keep silence; and this arrangement was commissioned in 2007 by the Oxford choir, Sospiri, for their CD of Christmas music, Videte Miraculum. The text, a miniature morality tale, has a simple, almost childlike quality to it and this is reflected in the shimmering harmonies and soft, fleeting dissonances, presenting the story as a bittersweet fairy tale.
