I wonder as I wander

2017; S solo + SSAATTBB
author of text
possibly after an Appalachian carol

Holst or Warlock might almost have written this charming, tuneful carol—an endearing reminder that for several centuries English composers have had a place in their hearts for the carol genre, a form of folk art still beloved and current. John Jacob Niles originally set the text to his own tune, and for some years this American folk singer of the mid-twentieth century passed off the finished result as an Appalachian folk carol before admitting that both words and music were his own invention.
