These carols are a delight to hear and sing. The first and fifth carols are hymn-like, while the second and forth are in a litling 6/8 meter. The third carol is the most subtle, both in phrasing and harmony. While they are reminiscent of the English carol style, they also have their own melodic personality that makes them most attractive. This set of carols would make an excellent addition to any Christmas service or concert.
