The rising of the sun

Calmgrove

sun wreath

The rising of the sun and the running of the deer,
The playing of the merry organ, sweet singing in the choir.

Chorus from traditional carol The Holly and the Ivy, from a broadside of about 1710 and therefore at least a little older than that. The words to the verses confirm that carols aren’t just for midwinter but also for seasons such as Lent and Easter.
