This cello tapestry is an instrumental version of a very old French carol, dating from as early as the 14th century. The music itself was not originally composed as Christmas music, but as a lively court dance tune (which seems to have reemerged in my version, though I didn't know that when I created it). The traditional carol first appeared (with both words and music) as "Un Flambeau, Jeannette, Isabella" in a French book of carols published in 1553.
