Ding dong! merrily on high

composer
16th-century French melody
arranger
author of text

 
The tune of Ding dong! merrily on high first appeared in Orchésographie, a dance-book by Jehan Tabourot (1519-95)—the pen-name (nearly a perfect anagram) of Thoinot Arbeau. George Ratcliffe Woodward’s lyrics were first published in 1924 in his Cambridge carol-book. Mack Wilberg, music director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir since 2008, arranged the version sung here, with its brilliant organ part, and additional brass parts by Mark Jordan.
