This is a very straightforward, but highly effective and beautiful arrangement of a carol whose history is largely unknown. Although scored for double SATB choir, it also works well with just 8 singers (i.e. 1 per part). The undemanding organ part, though written for a 2 (or even 3) manual instrument, may be played on even a 1 manual instrument.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.
