Day 8 - Un flambeau, Jeanette, Isabelle

Day 8 of my ‪#‎MusicalAdventCalendar‬ to raise money for Shelter Cymru. Today is a beautiful old French carol, I've tried my best, but neither my singing nor French is really good enough - but it's all for charity, so I don't mind if you laugh! I'm having loads of fun while raising money for a brilliant charity!

Don't worry, there's better singing on the way!

Fantastic! Audrey, a great lover of torches, sang this carol in English when she was a child. I loved the tune without ever knowing the words. I looked it up on Wikipedia and found out this tidbit:

“To this day in the Provence region, children dress up as shepherds and milkmaids, carrying torches and candles to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, while singing the carol.”

It's a really pretty little tune - just wish I had the voice to do it justice! I had fin though :)
