Tune of the Day: God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen

arranged for three flutes

Undoubtedly one of the most popular Christmas carols, “God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen” is quite an old song. The earliest known version was found in an anonymous manuscript dating back all the way to the 1650s! And yet, to this day it remains a ubiquitous presence during Christmas time.

Thanks to Mark for contributing this arrangement for three flutes!
