This is a recent Christmas carol, not very well-known yet. The harmony is very easy and can easily be performed by choirs with a Christmas repertoire that has to be quickly ready. Lyrics are based on a popular song. They are spontaneous and simple, even a little bit naive. The spelling is free, like in many popular songs (cf. “courre” for instance).
François Piguet teaches notation at Conservatoire de Saint-Étienne. He is also a composer and arranger.
