The Babe in Bethlehem’s Manger

 

“The Babe in Bethlehem’s Manger” is an anonymous English folk Christmas carol celebrating the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. The writer of the carol is not known however the lyrics are traditionally ascribed as being a traditional folk hymn from the English county of Kent. The music probably dates from the 18th century.

My instrumental rock arrangement is in the style of the Shadows.

Wassail Song

“The Wassail Song” (Here We Come A-wassailing) is an English traditional Christmas carol composed c. 1850. It refers to ‘wassailing’, or singing carols door to door, in hopes of partaking of the wassail bowl – a hearty combination of hot ale or beer, apples, spices and mead.

My arrangement is in a 1960’s instrumental guitar rock style similar to the Ventures.
