Description of the Christmas carols

The Christmas carols from Provence, like one’s of the nearby County of Nice, generally respect the same narrative frame, the one of the Pastorale provençale (Provençal pastoral) and the Presèpi nissart.

Christmas carols from Provence by Nicolas Saboly

Composed around 370 years ago, Nicolas Saboly’s carols use sometimes the usual narrative framework of the Provençal pastoral. But Saboly often wanders in order to report the natural events (the Rhône floods...), social events (revolts of the “Fronde avignonaise”, town planning...) or political events (visit from the king, election of the pope...) that have marked his century, in Avignon and within the Comtat Venaissin. In the same way, Nicolas Saboly settled his hash with his religious superiors(cf. carol Ai proun couneigu) and his colleagues (cf. carol Nautre sian d’enfant de cor).

For a number of his Christmas carols, Nicolas Saboly, known as Micoulau Sabòli, has often composed from two to four different musics, with same title and same lyrics, only marked bis, ter, etc. Numbers in parentheses refer to Christmas carols classification by Fr. Seguin.

Seven among carols that make up the 4th book form a coherent cycle called Histori de la naissenso dou Fis de Diou (History of God’s Son birth). Each of these seven carols presents a single scene, that corresponds to an episode of this “History of Jesus Christ birth”, since census of the population in Bethlehem (carol #25, Dòu tèms de l’Empèri rouman) up to the Three Kings’ arrival at the nativity scene (carol #31, Lei mage dins Jerusalèn).
