This arrangement of a favorite French carol depicts Isabella running in hurry to see the Christ Child in Bethlehem. The urgency of the exciting event is felt throughout the piece and the singers encourage Isabella with Run, Isabella, run! A flute obligato runs along as well, and moves in duet with the piano and voices. Even though this text describes the birth of the Christ Child, alternate lyrics for school are also on the score. An energy-filled arrangement for your middle school choir!
