Description

Unison choir, keyboard, and flute. A new, "traditional/folk"-sounding musical setting of the traditional English carol text. Ebullient and modal.

I saw three ships come sailing in on Christmas day, on Christmas day.
I saw three ships come sailing in on Christmas day in the morn!

And who was in those ships all three but Joseph and his Maid,
And all the bells on earth did ring on Christmas in the morn!

And all the souls on earth shall sing on Christmas day, on Christmas day.
And all the souls on earth shall sing on Christmas day in the morn!

Then let us all rejoice a-main on Christmas day, on Christmas day,
Then let us all rejoice a-main on Christmas day in the morn!
