God rest ye merry, gentlemen

18-century English

Dating from the eighteenth century, this traditional English Christmas carol needs no introduction. The Danish composer, John Høybye, also a distinguished choral conductor, captures the joyful spirit underlying its three verses by framing his setting with a lively evocation of bells and he instructs the singers to sing with a smile!
