This novel setting of the traditional carol "Good King Wenceslas" will musically transport you and your students to the royal Christmas banquet hall of a medieval king!
The old carol tells the story of a legendary 10th-century monarch, Duke Wenceslas of Bohemia, who went out in the severe cold to give charity to the poor on December 26, also known as St. Stephens Day. The well-known 13th-century carol tune, as well as additional original material in period style, vividly conjures a lively celebration of Christmas in the high Middle Ages.
Come now ye lords and ladies to the Feast of Stephen and upon your instruments faire make most merry this Yuletide! (2:31) This title is available in SmartMusic.
