Track Name: Entre Le Boeuf/Bring A Torch Jeannette Isabella
ENTRE LE BOEUF - The words say: Between the donkey and the grey ox sleeps the little son. A thousand divine angels, a thousand seraphim fly around the God of love. In Mary’s arms sleeps the Fruit of Life. On this blessed holy day sleeps the little son.
Track Name: O Tannenbaum
The words say: Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how lovely are your branches. They’re green when summer days are bright. They’re green when winter snow is white. Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how lovely are your branches.
Track Name: Pedida De La Posada
The words alternate between Saint Joseph and the man of the house. Joseph asks for lodging, and the man of the house, suspicious of them, refuses. Joseph explains that his wife Mary cannot walk, but the man of the house again refuses, and threatens to beat them if they don’t go away. Joseph finally explains that Mary will be the Mother of the Divine World, convincing the man of the house, who apologizes and welcomes them into his home.
