Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is not a Christmas Carol as such, having started life in a famous Hollywood musical of the mid 1940s—Meet Me in St Louis—in which it was sung by Judy Garland. It was written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane and has been recorded by almost every major popular singer since. Over the years, its lyrics have been frequently altered and it has recently become a favourite item for choirs, for concert use. The present a capella arrangement by composer Peter Gritton, director of music at St Paul’s School, dates from 1989.
