Christmas Carols in Traditional Sound

Let all the songs
On Christmas Day, play
And with heralding
Choristers sing, ring
The coming of
The heaven-sent,
Love-cradled King.

Christmas Carols in Jazz

Let the horns sound round,
The bass and drums beat sweet,
The keys tell well,
In rhythms neat,
The glory sound
Of God complete,
