about

Chaque année je me réjouis de partager avec vous un chant de Noël qui évoque pour moi la douceur et le mystère de cette saison. Je suis tombée sur cette chanson qui m’a subjugué par ses images de la forêt médiévale, la pleine lune et les cloches spectrales du paradis qui y résonnent. Avec cette berceuse, je vous souhaite de douces fêtes et un beau retour à la lumière. Toutes les revenues iront à Amazon Watch, une organisation caritative qui a comme but la protection de la forêt amazonienne et les peuples indigènes qui y habitent.

Every year it's my pleasure to share with you a Christmas carol that evokes the sweetness and mystery of the season. I came across this song that struck me with its images of the medieval forest, the full moon and the ghostly bells of paradise that echo throughout it. With this lullaby I wish you a peaceful holiday and a joyful return to the light of lengthening days. All revenues will go to Amazon Watch, a charity that protects the rainforest by supporting indigenous peoples.

lyrics

Down in yon forest there stands a hall:
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
It's covered all over with purple and pall
And I love him, I love him above anything

In that hall there stands a bed:
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
It's covered all over with scarlet so red:
And I love him, I love him above anything

By that bed there stands a stone
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
Which the sweet Virgin Mary knelt upon:
And I love him, I love him above anything

Under that bed there runs a flood:
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
The one half runs water, the other runs blood:
And I love him, I love him above anything

Over that forest the full moon shines bright
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
Denoting our Saviour was born this night:
And we love him, we love him above anything
