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 Halls intertwined with The Holly and the Ivy before all parts converge for an joyful rendition of I Saw Three Ships in a bright and festive finale.
