I caught the last of this on NPR today. Loved it. Any idea where I could find the sheet music?

Actually, IMSLP has it. If you listened to the same version I did, composer is Samuel Wesley. It's listed under "Variations on God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen".

Thanks for the lead ... have just played through the first 15 measures of the Christmassy Carol ... to remind myself of the first time I heard the December carol at the Albert Hall (In Londinium).

Please chaps ... remember that I was a savage colonial at the time, taking in the culture (said with stiff upper lip!) ... what a wondrous experience including all those Partridges flapping around in Pear trees.

It was of interest to see where the comma is placed in the title ... God Rest Ye Merry, ........ Gentlemen.

Please note the exobitant cost of the Carol ... 1/6 (one shilling and sixpence in the old money)

Thank you Mr. Wesley ... A Merry Christmas.
