Check out the 2021 Fiddlerman “White Christmas” Group Project.
Some of the most beautiful Christmas Carols originated in France!
Here's one of my favorites, from the 13th Century - "Entre le Boeuf et L’Ane Gris" (Here Betwixt Ass and Oxen). Video sheet music (Andrew Remillard).
Here's another favorite Carol - with Orchestra score.
A slight variation of "Entre le Boeuf et L’Ane Gris", performed by Merle Mayes - cello!
Here's a medley of two Provence Carols - "Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabell and Listen to me good Joseph", performed by Steve Muise.
"Masters in This Hall" (aka. Nowell, Sing We Clear - La Matelot, Female Saylor).
This tune is French, but I'm not sure if this is considered a traditional French Christmas Carol, because the Christmas words we know it by were written by English poet & artist, William Morris!
Marin Marais composed the tune as a dance for his opera Alcyone of 1706, with the title "Marche pour les Matelots". (Wikipedia)
Here Craig Duncan plays a simple version.
Here's sheet music at The Session, in Gmin, Gdor & Emin.
