So many beautiful images of Christmas are the same from country to country – the Nativity, decorated Chrstmas trees, caroling. This is a traditional Greek Carol called Κάλαντα Χριστουγέννων (kalanta chistogenia). In the images you can see children caroling with a triangle – a traditional practice in this country.
Madrigal singers in full costume sing a lovely acapella version of the French Christmas carol, Bring a Torch, Jeannette Isabella. In French, the song is Un Flambeau Jeanette Isabelle.
A lovely version of this traditional French carol sung by Diane Taraz. Lyrics for both the English and French version can be found on the Wikipedia page for the song: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bring_a_Torch,_Jeanette,_Isabella.
