Keeping in step with the season, this week’s selection is my hyperactive arrangement of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. Thanks to Wikipedia, I learned all sorts of interesting things about this traditional carol. Did you know that Satan is prominently mentioned in the lyrics? This adds an element of drama which I feel is sorely lacking in most holiday songs.
I can’t post the arrangement directly, since it was commissioned by a music library and I don’t technically own it. But you can hear a chunk of it for free on Amazon via the link below.
