This piece dates back to 19th-century Cornwall County in southwest England, and the lyrics most associated with this melody are similar to the text of "The Holly and the Ivy."

This arrangement of the beautiful carol gives beginning band students an opportunity to work on expressive playing while using limited technical demands. Fitting for both holiday and festival performances.
