Jesus Child

First line:
Have you heard the story that they’re telling ’bout Bethlehem
composer
author of text

 
Both Jesus Child and Donkey Carol were written in the 1970s for performance by the choir of St Albans School in Hertfordshire, England, at the request of its director of music at the time, Simon Lindley. Jesus Child brings a touch of Caribbean colour to the dark days of December.

Jesus Child et Donkey Carol furent tous deux écrits dans les années 1970 pour être exécutés par le chœur de l’Ecole St Albans dans l’Hertfordshire, en Angleterre, à la demande du directeur de la musique de l’époque, Simon Lindley. Jesus Child réunit la touche colorée des Caraïbes aux jours peu ensoleillés de Noël.

Sowohl Jesus Child als auch Donkey Carol entstanden in den 1970er Jahren zur Aufführung durch den Chor der St. Albans School in der englischen Grafschaft Hertfordshire, auf die Bitte seines damaligen musikalischen Leiters Simon Lindley hin. Jesus Child bringt ein wenig karibische Farbe in die dunklen Dezembertage.
