A Renaissance-inspired setting of this French carol (UN FLAMBEAU) with a twentieth-century text by Ken Bible. The contrapuntal instrument parts add a buoyant character to the first and third stanzas; the choir sings the second stanza in a simple four-part setting. A perfect Christmas concertato for the smaller choir.
