Programme Notes

A setting for SATB and organ (or piano) of the carol.

The Wexford Carol (Irish: Carúl Loch Garman, Carúl Inis Córthaidh) is a traditional Irish Christmas carol originating from County Wexford, and specifically, Enniscorthy (whence its name), and dating to the 12th century.  The subject of the song is that of the nativity of Jesus Christ.

The Wexford Carol is one of the oldest extant Christmas carols in the European tradition.  The song is sometimes known by its first line, ‘Good people all this Christmas time.’
