Jolly Old St Nicolas

“Jolly Old Saint Nicholas” is a secular Christmas song that originated with a poem by Emily Huntington Miller (1833-1913), published as “Lilly’s Secret” in 1865.  The song is traditionally performed to a melody which James Lord Pierpont wrote in 1857 for the original version of “Jingle Bells”.

For a “B” section, I have used “The Boar’s Head Carol”, a 15th century English Christmas carol that describes the ancient tradition of sacrificing a boar and presenting its head at a Yuletide feast.

As usual, my instrumental arrangement is in 1960’s guitar-rock style.
