Tune of the Day: Noël des ausels
Not much is known about this old “Carol of the Birds”. Some hymnals refer to the tune as “Bas-Quercy”, which is the name of a small region in the southwest of France where it may have originated. In the English-speaking world, the melody is usually associated with the lyrics “Whence Comes This Rush of Wings?”.
Many thanks to Mark for contributing this arrangement for three flutes!
