This festive medley combines three joyful melodies into a cheerful Celtic tapestry. Centering on "The Sussex Carol," it also takes the listener on a colorful romp through "Good Christian Men, Rejoice," as well as an Irish fiddle tune entitled "A Merry Christmas." The work can be performed with strings alone, but the addition of hand drum, guitar, and whistle give a distinctive "fiddle band" sound without significantly increasing rehearsal preparation.
