Noël! Noël! (Carraud / Th. Gautier)
This charming poem by Théophile Gautier has also been set to music by Nicolas Sokolov, Rhené-Baton and Alain Jacques. Here is a literal translation (AJ):
1. The sky is black, the earth is white, Bells ring gaily a peal: Jesus is born, the Virgin tilts Over him her charming face.
2. No festooned rangings To protect the child from the cold; Only spider webs Hanging from the beams of the roof.
3. He shivers on the cool straw This darling little baby Jesus, And to warm him up in his manger The donkey and the ox are blowing on him.
4. The snow to the thatch is sewing fringes, But on the roof opens the sky And, all in white, the choir of the angels Sings to the shepherds: Noël, Noël!
