The Christmas Revels Songbook

Item Number: SB1078


We’re thrilled to once again have in stock The Christmas Revels Songbook. Thank you to the generous donors who made reprinting this book, now with an enclosed spiral binding, possible.


John Langstaff and his wife, noted pianist and arranger Nancy Woodbridge Langstaff, provided a playful and tender primer of Christmas Revels favorites, including carols, processionals, rounds, ritual, and children’s songs. The 63 selections include “Deck the Hall,” “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” “Gower Wassail,” “The Holly and the Ivy,” “Lord of the Dance,” and “Personent Hodie.”
