A Seasonal Post

December 28, 2013

Courtesy of the December concert of Piffaro: The Renaissance Band, a verse from an old carol, 16th–17th century, with jaunty internal rhymes:

All hail to the days that merit more praise
Than all the rest of the year,
And welcome the nights with double delights,
As well for the poor as the peer.
Good fortune attend each merry man’s friend
That doth but the best that we may;
Forgetting old wrongs, with carols and songs,
To drive the cold winter away.
