Christmas Carol Spotlight: Bring a torch, Jeanette Isabella

I have loved this song since I was a little girl, and always perked up when I heard it.  Unfortunately, that has never been as often as I wished. (And even less often is it a version with vocals.) It's a French song (Provencal) and not originally intended to be a Christmas carol. But the English translation, with it's perpetual references to Christ is born, and to not wake a baby sleeping in a stable, it's hard to not make that correlation.  Isn't it pretty?
