about

For fans of Allison Krauss & Robert Plant, The Civil Wars, Sufjan Stevens, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, She & Him, The SteelDrivers

Colin Wylie & Hinterlandband have been looking forward to sharing this song with you.

This recording is a musical composition based on the 17th Century French Christmas carol 'Un flambeau, Jeannette, Isabelle', translated, 'Bring a Torch Jeanette Isabella'.

Performed as an endearing male & female holiday duet, backed by a lovely, lilting arrangement composed of stand-up bass, steel guitar, dobro, banjo, piano, guitars, & chorale, all performed by Colin Wylie and Hinterlandband.

lyrics

BRING A TORCH JEANETTE ISABELLA
BRING A TORCH AND QUICKLY COME
CHRIST IS BORN GOOD FOLKS OF THE VILLAGE
CHRIST IS BORN MARYS CALLING

BEAUTIFUL IS THE MOTHER BEAUTIFUL IS HER SON

QUIET ALL NOR WAKEN JESUS
QUIET ALL WHISPER LOW
SILENCE ALL AND GATHER AROUND HIM
TALK AND NISE MIGHT WAKEN JESUS

QUIETLY NOW HE SLUMBERS QUIETLY NOW HE SLEEPS

COME AND SEE WITHIN THE STABLE
COME AND SEE THE HOLY ONE
COME AND SEE THEHOLY JESUS
WHITE HIS BROUGH HIS CHEEKS ARE ROSEY
