A few weeks ago [a friend] asked if she could use this carol off one of my Christmas CDs for a project she was working on called A Blue Christmas. Of course! And I had forgotten about this arrangement….slightly “bluesy”….and decided it was time to play it again.
God Rest….is a traditional English Christmas carol dating back to the 16th century. It is sung by carolers in Charles Dickens’, A Christmas Carol, and enrages Scrooge. In past years we would be attending Commonweal and watching our talented friends perform this Christmas play. Next year!!!!! “O tidings of comfort and joy!”
