These two carols in 3/4 meter blend beautifully in this Christmas medley celebrating our lovely Christmas greenery. The opening block chord accompaniment with straight rhythms quickly gives way to a contemporary broken chord feel with open harmonies, which transitions seamlessly back and forth between the two melodies. The arrangement has a peaceful, calm feel with just enough surprising harmonic choices (including sevenths and ninths) to help it feel fresh, yet right at home. It is a good choice for a lovely and serene holiday performance piece.
