Tra Va Ruggit Creest

Manx christmas carol (title means ‘When Christ was Born’) which is also often played as a session tune. The Methodists also took the tune and turned it into the hymn ‘The Good Old Way.’ John Wesley visited the Island, and used a lot of secular Manx tunes as the basis for sacred hymns.
