Written by French composer Bernard de La Monnoye (1641-1728), the song Pat-a-Pan was composed for a collection of Burgundian Christmas carols. Immensely popular, Pat-a-Pan is a Christian Christmas carol that describes the birth of Christ from the shepherd’s perspective. The words “pat-a-pan” are an example of an onomatopoeia. This group of syllables was specifically written to describe the sound a drum makes. Recently, David Archuleta recorded a version of Pat-a-Pan for his newly released Christmas CD.
We hope you enjoy this limited-time only sale on the Burgundian Christmas carol, Pat-a-Pan.
