This Christmas Carol had its beginnings in the Ukraine before 1900. This arrangement is a cappella satb, as was the original. This arrangement needs a moderate to higher level of singing experience. The three-four time is easily directed in one, lasting just a bit longer than two minutes. Your audiences will recognize the song and love this new arrangement.

The song was first performed by students at Kiev University in December 1916, but the song lost popularity in Ukraine shortly after the Soviet Union took hold. It was introduced to Western audiences by the Ukrainian National Chorus during its 1919 concert tour of Europe and the Americas, where it premiered in the United States on October 5, 1921 to a sold-out audience at Carnegie Hall.
