Noël nouvelet

by Fawn Fritzen



This recording is a gift to my fans for Christmas 2014. Merry Christmas!

Noël nouvelet is a traditional French Christmas carol from the late 1400s. There are many versions of the lyrics in French, as well as an English version known as "Sing We Now of Christmas", although the lyrics are quite different in meaning.


1. Noël nouvelet, Noël chantons ici,
Dévotes gens crions a Dieu merci!

Chantons Noël pour le Roi nouvelet
Chantons tous Noël pour le Roi nouvelet
Noël nouvelet, Noël chantons Noël!

2. L'ange disait, pasteurs partez d'ici!
En Bethléem trouverez l'agnelet.

3. En Bethléem, étant tous réunis,
Trouverent l'enfant, Joseph, Marie aussi.

4. Bientôt, les Rois, par l'étoile eclaircis,
À Bethléem vinrent un matinet.

5. L'un partait l'or et l'autre myrrhe aussi
Et l’autre encens que faisait bon senti
