This is an unusual setting for treble voices and harp. The words of the carols are largely the product of mostly anonymous 15th and 16th century writers. They retain their originality by Britten's extensive use of old English language. The work opens and ends with the choir processing to plainsong, and the sections in-between deal with the traditional stories surrounding the birth of Christ.
