Tune of the Day: Sing We Now Of Christmas
With less than a month until Christmas it's time to start posting some carols!
“Sing We Now Of Christmas” is the English title of a 15th-century traditional French carol known as “Noël nouvelet”. English translations of this carol appeared as early as the 17th century, and many different hymns are now sung to this tune, including “Now The Green Blade Rises” and “Welcome, Happy Morning!”.
You may notice that, while the tune is in F minor, it has a D-natural in it. That's because this tune, like many other old tunes, is a modal tune, and more precisely, a Dorian-mode tune.
Thanks to Sarah for suggesting this tune!
