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 trio, with the middle part included in both treble and alto clef giving you the flexibility of playing it with either two violins and cello or violin, viola and cello. Score, set of parts 16 pages.
