Il Est Né

From Plank Road Publishing

adapted/arr. Karl Hitzemann

"Il Est Né" is a lovely French Christmas carol that has been a favorite of many for decades. Our arrangement has a bright, gentle feel to it, featuring an accompaniment of piano, bass, guitar, and strings. The piano part we've provided would work well for a totally live performance. The song opens and closes with a vocal echo effect, which is optional.

The kit includes as recorded pronunciation guide to help with the French lyrics. To keep it simple, we only used the first phrase from the original carol – "Il est né le Divin Enfant," which means "He is born, the Divine Child." (from Music K-8, Vol. 26, No. 2)
