Tune of the Day: We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Traditional English Christmas carol, arraged for two flutes

We all know this famous carol, and yet the identity of the author and composer of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” remains a total mystery to date. That said, its origins are widely believed to be in 16th-century England, where it was performed by carolers for the entertainment of the rich and powerful.

Thanks to Anne McKennon for contributing this arrangement for two flutes!
