John Kirkpatrickwas commissioned to write a couple of new carols for a Wassail tour organised by Folkworks in the north of England in 1995. One was this new classic, through-composed for band, solo voices and a small choir. It is performed by the Tyneside Maritime Chorus as a seasonal Christmas song. The song has strong anti-war sentiments and expresses the hopes that good overcome evil and light overcomes darkness.
This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook
