Another Christmas cracker (compare the Austrian carol, Away upon the mountain top). Play it as fast as you like at any Christmas occasion; but if the semiquavers in the final chorus are too much for fingers or tongue, substitute the flutes 2 and 3 parts from previous appearances of the chorus. And, as with my arrangements of the Austrian carol and Silent Night, please pencil in your own phrasing and articulations.
