This carol has been attributed to several different composers, and in fact several different versions of the popular Christmas tune have been published in the last two hundred years. This 4/4 arrangement, basically in Eb draws from versions commonly associated with the title, as well as a lesser known (and very different) version by Francis Barret published in 1879. Parts of the Barret tune appear in the introduction, interludes and ending. The orchestration features full rich ensemble passages supported with a blend of traditional and jazz influenced harmonizations. 1st trumpet to written Bb. Two alternate trumpet parts in C are included. Medium.
