♔Chipping Campden- Cotswolds England

Good King Wenceslas last looked out,
On the feast of Stephen,
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even.
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel,
When a poor man came in sight
Gathering winter fuel.

~Good King Wenceslas | Christmas Carol

The words to the carol “Good King Wenceslas” were written by John Mason Neale and published in 1853,-the music originated in Finland 300 years earlier.

This  carol is unusual as there is no reference in the lyrics to the nativity. Good King Wenceslas was the king of Bohemia in the 10th century.
