for SATB and organ or chamber orchestra This cheery carol by Sir Philip Ledger was originally published in the collection Carols for Choirs 5. The important and uplifting message of Longfellow's text is reflected in Ledger's classic and perfectly balanced choral style, with pealing bells in the organ, pleasing contrary motion in the voices, and a short, triumphant coda.
