BRING A TORCH, JEANETTE, ISABELLA
Traditional French Carol
The Christmas carol, Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella (Un Flambeau, Jeanette, Isabelle in French) tells the story of two milkmaids, Jeanette and Isabella, who went to a stable in Bethlehem to milk the cows only to find the baby Jesus sleeping in the hay. They were so filled with excitement that they took their torches and ran to the village to spread the news of the newborn Christ child. The townspeople came with their own torches to view the sight for themselves. However, they had to keep their voices down so little Jesus could enjoy his dreams. To this day in the Provence region, children dress up as shepherds and milkmaids, carrying torches and candles to church on Christmas Eve while singing the carol.
