Patapan

This carol is a traditional provencal carol, which would originally have been played on a high pitched flute and a special drum, called the tambour. 

00:00 / 01:34

At our Savior's birth we play;

This hath ever been our way;

Blow the pipe and play the drum:

Turralurralu! Patapatapan!

Blow the pipe and play the drum,

For the King of Kings has come!

Leap for joy and dance and sing,

Drum and pipe re-echoing

Closer yet than pipe and drum,

Turralurralu! Patapatapan!

Closer yet than pipe and drum

God and man this day become!
