Ding Dong Merrily on High - Day 26 on the Musical Advent Calendar

Allison Crowe, the most original, vital – and versatile – voice of her generation in popular music rings in Day 26 on the Advent Calendar with this playful song off the all-a-cappella “Souling” album:

Written originally as a French dance tune in the 1500s, words were added to create “Ding Dong Merrily on High”, first published in 1924’s “The Cambridge Carol-Book: Being Fifty-two Songs for Christmas, Easter, And Other Seasons”.

Enjoy a new song each day through Christmas open on Allison Crowe’s Musical Advent Calendar @
