Tune of the Day: O felice, o chiara notte

Traditional Italian Christmas carol, arranged for flute quartet

This arrangement for three concert flutes and one alto flute of “O felice, o chiara notte” (“O happy, o clear night”) was kindly contributed to our collection by Francesco Spiga. The carol comes from Trentino, a mountainous region in Northern Italy.

O happy, o clear night,
Of that light you are fruitful,
But the dawn is more joyous,
More charming than morning.

Come now, o you shepherds, do not sleep,
For it is time to watch!
But those voices are gone,
They quickly come back.

Come now, o you shepherds, to the hut,
Come on and do not delay!
Forget your lambs:
God will watch from above.
