Good King Wenceslas


Good King Wenceslas is a Christmas carol that tells a story of a Bohemian king who goes on a journey, braving harsh winter weather, to give alms to a poor peasant on the Feast of Stephen (December 26, the Second Day of Christmas). The story was first set to music in 1853, and the melody used was the 13th-century spring carol “Tempus adest floridum” (“Eastertime has come”) first published in the 1582 Finnish song collection Piae Cantiones. This arrangement is for string quartet. Score, set of parts 12 pages.
