It Was The Holly

Christmas Music 2016One of the great joys of researching Christmas music every year is finding carols that I have not previously encountered. This year’s research surprise is the “Sans Day Carol”, also known as the “St. Day Carol”, one of several Cornish carols from the 19th century. The text is similar to “The Holly And The Ivy” (follow the text here) and the version here today is arranged by John Rutter and performed by the Byrd Ensemble.
