15th Century Medieval poem, music by Sheldon Curry.
Hearkening back to the days of medieval poetry, wandering minstrels and mystery plays, Sheldon Curry revives the sounds and musical styles of early Britain. The ancient Christmas poem takes on a whole new vitality in a rousing 6/8 raucous dance feel. The optional Hurdy Gurdy is playable by any of several "drone" instruments, synthesizer or, if you can find one, a real Hurdy Gurdy. The percussion instruments and oboe are also optional but add a real sense of flair to the occasion. The celebration winds up in a canonic jig of boundless joy.
