This delightful carol by the American who also composed “Carol of the Drum” is pleasing for congregation and choir. The generally diatonic melody is given a different treatment for each verse, growing more complicated in texture as the selection progresses. The descant on the last verse (with its high A) can easily be omitted. Although it requires a good pianist and has some tricky counting in the interludes, this selection is a choir favorite.
