Yuletide Series: Noel Nouvelet (BLP #110)



SATB (A cappella)

“Noel Nouvelet.”  Words and music for this traditional French carol date back to the 15th century.  The English translation used here probably comes from the 18th century.  Melodically rooted in the Dorian mode, this carol is characterized by an incessant drone, rising key scheme and increasing dynamics which all contribute to the drama of this unique carol.
