Christmas repertoire - wassail song.

English wassail song.

This version comes from the Lea Nicholson LP, "Horsemusic" (on the UK Trailer label). On the record it was done in the key of C.

Kate rusby sweet bells

there is a great version of this on kate rusby’s sweet bells album. i think that its in c but i’m not sure.

Changed the abc notation

I changed the ABC to read (easier) in 6/8 , with chords, but this doesn’t seem to have any effect to the sheet music jpg/gif.

Re: Here We Come A-Wassailing

Neither Lea Nicholson, ‘Horsemusic’, nor this tune show up under the ‘Recordings’ tab on this site. An unfortunate omission, surely?
