God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen is arranged by Jackson Berkey. The famous carol opens with a cappella chanting in the choir and, following a short harp solo, turns into a rhythmic, joyous dance. The familiar tune is coupled with a not-so-familiar one as the textual meaning is highlighted through Berkey's particular wit and wisdom. Tonal shifts and modal modulations take us on a whirlwind trip, accompanied by harp, tambour, triangle and finger cymbals.
