We Wish You A Merry Christmas (Kalimba Tab)

We wish you a merry christmas is one of the most popular christmas carols of all time, it was originally accredited to Arthur Warrell, however, the song supposedly dates back to the 1500s. The original meaning of the song is believed to be part of a threat from servants to their masters as they demand more wine and food or else. 

Arthur Warrell arranged the tune for his own University of Bristol Madrigal Singers as an elaborate four-part arrangement, he then performed with them in concert on December 6, 1935 and had it published by Oxford University Press under the title "A Merry Christmas. We wish you a Merry Christmas is true English Carol that is in the public domain and is therefore royalty free, happy caroling.
