Fauré: Il est né - wind dectet

Fauré: Il est né - wind dectet

"Il est né, le divin Enfant" (English: He is born, the divine Child) is a traditional French Christmas carol, which was published for the first time in 1862 by R. Grosjean, organist of the Cathedral of Saint-Dié-des-Vosges, in a collection of carols entitled "Airs des Noëls lorrains." The text of the carol was published for the first time in a collection of ancient carols, published in either 1875 or 1876 by Dom G. Legeay.
Faure made an arrangement for keyboard, which I have transcribed for double wind quintet.( and bass)
It has several different verses and choruses, which I have scored for varying instrumentation. The melody is shared throughout.
