Wexford Carol

First line:
Good people all, this Christmas time
traditional Irish carol
author of text

This lovely Irish carol first became widely known when Vaughan Williams included it in The Oxford Book of Carols in 1928; it had been noted down and sent to him by Dr W H Gratton Flood, who heard it sung in Wexford. The present arrangement was made in 1978, for inclusion in Carols for Choirs 3.
