The Wexford Carol


  • Composer: Traditional
  • Instrumentation: Brass Band
SKU: BWBB111 Category: Tag:


The Wexford Carol, sometimes known by its first verse ‘Good people all this Christmas time’, is of uncertain origins and while it is occasionally claimed to be from the early Middle Ages, it likely was composed in the 15th or 16th century based on its musical and lyrical style. This stunning arrangement by Andrew Wainwright was originally scored for orchestra and has here been set for brass band. The layering of textures is magical and depicts perfectly the wintery moods and landscapes evocative of the Irish countryside.
