Bring the torch
Jeanette, Isabella
Bring the torch
Come swiftly and run

Christ is born
Tell the folk of the village
Jesus is sleeping
In his cradle

Ah, ah
Beautiful is the mother
Ah, ah
Beautiful is her son

Hasten now
Good folk of the village
Hasten now
The Christ child to see

You will find him
Asleep in the manger
Quietly come
Whisper softly

Hush, hush
Peacefully now he slumbers
Hush, hush
Peacefully now he sleeps

    General CommentIs this song recorded outside, on a rooftop or street? At 0:44 it sounds like either wind or a car passing by. And the song has a very low-tech sound to it.

    General Commentit almost sounds like they recorded it on something lo-fi, and then played that back and recorded it on something else... if that makes sense.
