We wish you a merry Christmas

author of text

We wish you a merry Christmas is a traditional West Country carol which may have originated in the 16th century. What is certain is its connection with the tradition of wealthy people giving treats to carollers on Christmas Eve. Andrew Gant, organist, choirmaster and composer of the Chapel Royal from 2000 to 2013, skilfully incorporates other carol tunes in his exuberant arrangement.
