I only wrote part of this song. The verse music is traditional Irish, 17th c. or earlier. The verse lyrics were published by Nahum Tate in 1698. I wrote the refrain and the musical interludes. The arrangement, of course, is mine as well.

Like last year, I did a slideshow to accompany the music, which is on YouTube, if you feel like listening to it with visuals (traditional paintings).
