Christmas Carols

The tradition of Christmas carols dates back as far as the thirteenth century, although carols were originally communal songs sung during celebrations like harvest tide as well as Christmas. It was only later that carols began to be sung in church, and to be specifically associated with Christmas. Traditionally, carols have often been based on medieval chord patterns, and it is this that gives them their uniquely characteristic musical sound. Some carols can be traced directly back to the Middle Ages, and are among the oldest musical compositions still regularly sung.

The carol, Good King Wenceslas, has been running through my head, even after Christmas! Maybe because I saw it performed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on TV. Happy New Year!
