This music will surprise you, but it shouldn’t. Jones couples the merriment and mirth of secular Christmas celebrations with the text of the traditional British folk Christmas carol. A carol is a dance, and this music dances with glee at the coming of Christ. A joyous and provocative anthem that will have you smiling.

For SATB or unison. Percussion parts are for side drum, triangle and suspended cymbal.
