This sweet, well known Christmas melody was originally a Finnish springtimesong, dating to the 13th Century. It was published in 1582 in a bookof seventy-four songs. After receiving a copy of that book as a gift, JohnMason Neale set his lyrics celebrating the famous Bohemian (907-935) to thismelody. In 1854, the book Carols for Easter-tide was published,including Good King Wenceslas as a Springtime song.

This arrangement has 5 verses in the key of G. It represents GoodKing Wenceslas and his Page trudging through (eighth notes) the harshwinter weather on December 26 as they leave their warm castle to help the poor.Occasionally there is a pause as they catch their breath or look through theswirling snow at how far they have traveled. The fourth verse represents the Pagewalking in King Wenceslas’s footsteps. The melody is divided evenly betweenparts. Dynamics are clearly marked.
