ARRANGER NOTES — This haunting and ancient melody is probably the most universal Advent carol among Christians everywhere. This arrangement is relatively simple with very little melodic ornamentation. Take your time with the final four bars (39–42) which may take a little extra practice due to the chords being voiced with three notes in each hand. (NOTE: You may simplify bars 39 and 40 by omitting the middle note in your LH.)
