Carols for Christmas-tide/The Condensed Vocal Parts to the Carols for Christmas-tide
We have put forth a fuller account of these Carols in the harmonised Folio Edition. It is here sufficient to observe: that the original words and music range from the end of the twelfth to the beginning of the fifteenth century: that we give the music without alteration: and that the words are free imitations, for the most part, of these and other ancient Christmas Carols.T.
