I learned St. Stephen's Day Carol
when a member of the Tyneside Maritime Chorus
which was always sung when the festive season came round. A lovely song it is also generally sung at the December meeting, a Come all Ye
session at the Cumberland Arms
, Ouseburn, Newcastle upon Tyne
. The theme of the song is similar to that given in The Wren Song
but not quite so cruel.
This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook
