Many of the carols in this medley date from times well before their first publication and may come from the medieval period. Whereas we now associate Carols with Christmas, traditionally they were a popular form of song and dance devoted to a seasonal or ecclesiastical occasion, but the church disapproved so the melodies became separated from the dance. For example the famous “Deck the Hall” was originally a Welsh carol celebrating the coming of spring and had decidedly secular words (bosums, blossums, blisses and kisses). This medley includes the Cherry Tree Carol, Ding Dong Merrily on High, The Boar's Head Carol, Past 3 O'clock, Adam Lay yBounden, Come all ye Worthy Gentlemen and the Goucestershire Wassail.

The parts are not too hard. The Eb part is covered by an extra Bb part and the Alto Clarinet part is covered by Clarinet 5. The 2nd Bass Clarinet is optional as are the contra parts.
