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.
