Geoff the Duck Trad Christmas songs for male voices (23) RE: Trad Christmas songs for male voices 05 Oct 12

Difficult to beat Hail Smiling Morn for a belter of a song. Unusual in the fact that it doesn't actually mention Christmas, Heaven, God or anything religious (although in South Yorkshire the Gates of Day have somehow metamorphosed into Gates of Heaven).
Not Traditional as the composer is known, but old enough to count. Let's face it, most Christmas Carols have words, tune or both attributed to a known source.

Hail Smiling Morn - Wikipedia
As sheet music
As a MIDI - not the best midi of the tune I have heard, but a previous link I had is no longer active.
