D’argent à une aigle de gueules, au vol abaissé, membrée, becquée et couronnée d’or, empiétant une montagne de trois coupeaux de sable issant d’une mer d’azur mouvant de la pointe et ondée d’argent.

Pastre dei mountagno listen the Midi file for this traditional music tune score of this traditional tune
(Shepherds from the mountains)
Traditional from Provence.

This Christmas carol comes from Our Lady of the Doms, in Avignon.

1st verse
Pastre dei mountagno,
La Divinita
A pres pèr coumpagno
Vosto umanita.
Soun dins la persouno
D’un petit Garçoun
Que soun Paire douno
Pèr vosto rançoun.
 Shepherds from the mountains,
The Divinity
Took as his companion
Your humanity.
Both are gathered in the person
Of a little Boy
His Father gives (offers)
For your ransom.

2nd verse
La troupo fidèlo
A pres gran pleisi
D’ausi la nouvello
Que l’Ange li a di.
An peno de crèire
Qu’acò sié verai ;
Volon l’ana vèire
Aqui vounte jai.
 The faithful people
Where pleased
To hear the news
That Angel said them.
They can hardly believe
That this is true;
They want to go and see
Where he is sleeping.

3rd verse
Lou pu vièi dei pastre
E lou pu savènt
Counsulto leis astre
Se fara bèu tèms :
Dis qu’en luno pleno
Fai toujour tèms dre,
E quand l’auro meno
Dis que fai bèn fre.
 The oldest from the shepherds
And the most learned (wisest)
Consults the stars
[To know] if weather will be fine:
He says that with the full moon
There is always “straight weather (1)”,
And when breeze leads (blows)
He says it’s quite cold.

4th verse
Guihaume s’abiho,
Viestis soun jargau
E dis à sa fiho :
« Istas à l’oustau,
Debanas la sedo,
Gardas lou troupèu,
Mousès vòstei fedo,
Largas leis agnèu. »
 William gets dressed,
Puts on his coat
And says to his daughter:
“Stay home,
Wind the silk (2),
Look after the herd,
Milk your ewes,
Take the lambs out.”

5th verse
Se vesias sa femo,
Gounflo coume un biòu.
Jito de lagremo
Grosso coume d’iòu !
Es descounsoulado
Quand noun pòu ana
Vèire l’Acouchado
E l’Enfan qu’es na.
 You should see his wife,
Swollen up as an ox.
She sheds tears
As big as eggs!
She is sorry
She cannot go
And see the New Mother
And the Child who is born.

6th verse
Leis àutrei pastouro,
Deman de matin
Viroun lei sèt ouro,
Saran pèr camin.
Crese que sei mouflo
Li faran pas mau,
Car lou vènt que souflo
N’es pas gaire caud.
 The other shepherdesses,
Tomorrow morning
Around seven,
Will be on their way.
I think their mittens
Will do them no harm,
Because the wind blowing
Is not very hot.

1. This weather is about mistral, a cold and dry wind that blows from North in the Rhône Valley and the Southern France.
2. Produced by the magnans, the silkworms.
