Note: God rest ye merry, gentlemen is one of the oldest known English Christmas carols, dating to the 16th century or earlier. Its evocative minor tonality, replete with flatted sevenths, gives it an introspective air. This setting has three variations, each expressing the character of the carol in a different way.
