You might call it a "contemporary carol," and in fact, the lyrics are adapted from an old English carol. The fresh melody and crisp harmonies say "holidays" and the new words are just right for the caroling season, complete with a "fa-la-la" refrain. Add the optional hand drum and tambourine for a Celtic Christmas feel.
