Here's my arrangement of the French Renaissance carol that was featured in Banjo Newsletter a number of years ago. The most challenging aspect of an arrangement like this on the banjo is trying to keep two voices - the top melody and the bottom bass - clear and present at the same time. Easy for classical guitarists, hard for banjo players! Merry Christmas everyone!!

Very pretty carol.   What issue of BNL was it in?  I'll have to buy that back issue.

Thanks for sharing this with us, Bill. On the Sunday after Christmas each year, our choir takes a break and a few of us play all of the service music. This carol is one that we always play for the occasion; we being Irish harp, guitar, double bass, flute, octave mandolin and mandolin (me). You did a fine job playing it and I enjoy picking it with you!
