Experience a storybook Christmas with this medley of old English carols. Beginning in 4/4 time, "Good King Wenceslas" meets "12 Days of Christmas" before violas sing "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" under a pizzicato refrain of "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen." A turn to 3/4 meter brings garlands of "Deck the Hall" intertwined with "The Holly and the Ivy" before all parts converge for a joyful rendition of "I Saw Three Ships" in a festive finale.
