A banjo carol for my friends on BHO, done in pseudo-baroque, then pseudo-clawhammer.

Thanks Janet. Your opinion means a lot to me. I had a hard time learning this. I was recalling it from childhood Christmas programs, but I remembered it wrong, and had to re-learn part.

Really nice job on that Lew. I guess I've heard it before (in fact I have it on at least two Christmas CDs), but certainly not one of the mainstream carols. Adapted nicely on the banjo.

Fantastic interpretation, Lew - an absolute joy to hear :)

Rick and Debs, Thanks. Since this was one of many "traditional" carols we sang in grade school, I thought it was just one of the standard ones. In any case, I really like to play that baroque-like doublestop thing on banjo, and it works great with this baroque composition by Handel.
