Tune of the Day: Sans Day Carol

Merry Christmas from flutetunes.com!

This is one of the many Cornish Christmas carols that appeared during the 19th century. The melody was first transcribed from the singing of Thomas Beard, a villager in St. Day in the parish of Gwennap, Cornwall. The village itself is named after St. Day (or St. They), a Breton saint venerated in Cornwall.
