Yuletide Series: Nativity Carol (BLP #118)



SATB (A cappella)

Dating back to the late 16th century, “Nativity Carol” (sometimes known as “Lute Book Carol”), was found in a lute book by William Ballet at Trinity College, Dublin.  A version for five viols also exists.  In a performance of this carol, the words “lul-la” and “lullaby” should be pronounced “loo-la” and “Loo-la-by” in accordance with tradition.
