The piece was written originally for equal voice choir in 1929. A mixed-choir adaptation was made in 1961 at the request of Oxford University Press. This appeared in print in the same year with an English text under the title A Christmas Carol in a collection of Christmas songs, as well as in a separate print. The musical material of the mixed-choir version largely follows the original. There is one essential difference in verse 5, beginning at bar 35 („Babe all holy”) where the tenor solo appears with a delightful eight-bar countermelody not found in the original. Since this version only appeared in Kodály’s lifetime with an English text, this has been retained, but we have also provided the original Hungarian text upon which the equal voice version is based.
