The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Index of Notes to Carols

Normally, notes concerning a particular carol are found on the same page as the lyrics. In some cases, however, when the notes are very long or because there are numerous versions of a carol, a separate page for those notes is called for. The following list are most of the primary notes of carols on this website.
