Berlioz, The Shepherds' Farewell
This is a movement from Hector Berlioz's superb Christmas oratorio, L' enfance du Christ,which is based on the theme of the Flight into Egypt. Unfortunately this is the only movement from the oratorio which makes sense out of context. It is the shepherds' farewell to Jesus at the manger before he and his parents flee to the town of Sais in Egypt.
