Item Number: S0.246833

A carol for New Year! SATB with a few bars of optional soprano divisi at the end. Would make a good closer or encore for a concert near Christmas, or (ideally!) for a concert or church service around the start of the year. 
Fast and energetic, with constant switching from 3/4 to 4/4 (pulse stays constant).
soprano D4-E5 (optional F#5)
alto A3-A4 (optional D4)
tenor D3-F#4
bass G2-D3
Full lyrics (traditional, from 1642): 
1. The old year now away is fled, the new year it is entered,
Then let us all our sins downtread, and joyfully all appear!
Let's merry be this day, and let us now both sport and play.
Hang grief: cast care away! God send you a happy new year.
2. And now with new year gifts each friend unto each other they do send;
God grant we may our lives amend, and that the truth may appear.
Now, like the snake his skin, cast off all evil thoughts and sin,
And so the year begins: God send us a happy new year!
