Program Notes

Another classic rendition from Mannheim Steamroller, Deck the Hall has a hip, infectious groove that kids love to play. Great contemporary harmony and music effects are all part of the special Mannheim sound that listeners love.

- Program Note from publisher

Deck the Halls or "Deck the Hall" (which is the original version of the lyrics) is a traditional Christmas, yuletide, and New Years' carol. The melody is Welsh dating back to the sixteenth century, and belongs to a winter carol, Nos Galan, while the English lyrics, written by Thomas Oliphant, date to 1862.
