Program Notes

This 1700 carol's history comes in the form of a memory game sung at Christmas time. Each person or child would sing a verse. When somebody missed a verse, some sort of penalty would be enforced. In this arrangement, try and remember which instrument group represents which day, or what mystery tune is used in its place.
