This carol is often sung at a sprightly pace, in keeping with the opening calls of "Bring a torch! Let's run to the stable!" The tempo has been slowed down to bring out the lullaby in the song, and make room for gently lilting harmonic lines that evoke the melting tone and the graceful, unhurried dance of a viol consort.
