Holly and Ivy

The great thing about Christmas carols is that they are reinvented and somehow, become new again. This year, I have heard two new arrangements of  “The Holly and the Ivy” which have made me like and appreciate this carol more than ever before. So, here are these two new arrangements, along with a more traditional one.
