Program Notes

The tune was noted by Miss Lucy E. Brodwood at Lyne, near Horsham (Sussex), in 1880 and 1881 from the singing of Christmas Mummers called Tipteers or Tipteerers during their play of Saint George, the Turk, and the seven champions of Christendom.

At the suggestion of Richard Franko Goldman, conductor of the Goldman Band, Percy Grainger arranged the carol for band. After his death, Goldman completed the arrangement and scoring of the work.
