Though carols are traditionally associated with Christmas, this was not always the case. “Carol” comes from the French word 'carole' which means circle dance accompanied by singing. It was part of any festivity and gradually came to be associated with holidays like Christmas. In England, festivities were banned following the Civil War and Protestantism, but many song writers and Protestants wrote musical works to be sung at Christmas and these were referred to as “carols.” Today, Christmas anywhere in the world is incomplete without carol singers and songs. They celebrate the season, the birth of Christ, the joy of the holidays and convey good wishes and cheer to listeners. Many famous carols are written in German, French and Latin as well as English. The Christmas Carol Collection by Various includes some traditional and some modern day carols, all of which embody the spirit of the festive season. The first one, Christ Was Born on Christmas Day is a 13th century song, which was once very popular all over Europe. The original Latin was translated by John Mason Neale, an eminent English clergyman, in the nineteenth century. American lyricist Charlotte Homer's delightful 1902 Christmas Lullaby follows next, set to music by Charles Gabriel Hutchinson. The famous and charming carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas, which was once a popular English folk song is also included here. It was first published in England in 1780 without music and was meant to be chanted. Come All You Merry Gentlemen, a 19th century song, follows. Est ist ein Ros entsprungen a beautiful 15th century German carol is next on the list. This song may be more familiar as Lo How a Rose e'er Blooming to the English speaking world. Gesu Bambino, a delightful Italian song was set to music by Frederick Herman Martens. The famous African-American gospel song, Go Tell it on the Mountain is a rousing anthem to the glory of God. A fifteenth century Sussex carol, the 19th century Boston carol, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, the traditional yet popular English carol I Saw Three Ships, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's charming I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day, Eduard Ebel's 1895 German song, Leise Reiselt der Schnee and more are included in this collection. These lovely carols invoke the theme of this most enjoyable festival, which conveys the message of hope and eternal life hereafter.

Une contre-histoire d'Italie, à travers le chant populaire
Une émission enregistrée dans le studio de la Deviation à Marseille Avec Séline Gülgönen, Laila Sage, Lorenzo Valera. L’Etat italien a il y a peu célébré son 150e anniversaire, et sa rhétorique patriotique a envahi le débat public en imposant une version de l’histoire : un beau conte, dont le héros est un peuple abstrait autant qu’idéalisé, bien éloigné de la réalité douloureuse et quotidienne des classes populaires et de leurs tentatives d’émancipation. Dans ce spectacle mêlant récits, chants et musique, nous vous ferons entendre d’autres voix. Quarante année de révoltes, de rebellions, d’illusions destinées à briser la fureur répressive d’un Etat qui punit impudemment les justes et récompense les assassins. Un lointain mais persistant coassement de grenouilles, refusant de se taire devant les fanfares sonores du pouvoir.... http://lechantdesgrenouilles.org Graphisme de Julien Cordier
