This carol, though infrequently sung, typifies all the sound of the Christmas season, making an instrumental setting doubly attractive. The tune is squarely stated and then followed by six variations. Suitable for high school players on up to professionals. Works well as a brass quartet, but add the tuba if you can.

Horn in F can be substituted for Trombone I
