Monique said, "This carol was learned from the group Montjòia's record "Cançons dei festas provençalas" (Songs of the Provençal Celebrations). You can buy the CD at Le Moustier. I have the original LP - a very good one!

It's a carol from "Noëls de Notre-Dame des Doms". Notre-Dame des Doms is a cathedral in Avignon, France. The local churchgoers would create carols to tunes they knew - often dance tunes. They started to be written down/collected from the 16th century on (this is what it says on the sleeve of the LP). This one is one of them."
