about

We stitched together two different French noëls by Pierre Dandrieu to make this medley.

lyrics

A la venue de Noël chacun se doit bien réjouir
Car c’est un testament nouvel que tout le monde doit tenir

Joseph est bien marié, Joseph est bien marié
A la fille de Jesse, a la fille de Jesse
C’était chose bien nouvelle
Que d’être mère et pucelle
Dieu y a bien operé,
Joseph est bien marié

Translation:
At the coming of Christmas, everyone must rejoice well
For there is a new testament which all the world must profess

Joseph is well married, Joseph is well married
To the daughter of Jesse, to the daughter of Jesse
It is truly a new thing
To be both a mother and a maiden
God did good work there
Joseph is well married

about

Conspiratio Seattle, Washington

"Conspiratio" is the latin word for harmony. It literally means "breathing together". It also means conspiracy. We conspire solely to amuse ourselves and others with very old songs, mostly about drinking!
