A minuit fut fait un réveil
Bon Joseph écoute moi

French musicians in the baroque era published a great many arrangements of earlier traditional folk noëls, or Christmas songs. This sequence is a medley of two such arranged by Nicholas Chédeville (1705-1782). The first is "A minuit fut fait un réveil", which has the rhythms of a Renaissance dance, and the second is "Bon Joseph écoute moi". So in keeping with the folk roots, I did a kind of country French arrangement behind Chédeville's baroque duets, played by Cajun accordions, and backed by fiddle, guitar, cello, and percussion.

This sequence uses the default pitch bend range. But if you don't play the file all the way through, then hit that old reset button anyhow ... just to clear other possible parameters which may affect how the next file is played.
