An arrangement of two Renaissance carols, it joins the two together into one continuous piece, creating a traditional "andante and allegro" format.  So Blest a Sight is a lovely though rarely heard English lullaby, and dates from the early 16th century.  The energetic and more familiar Ding Dong Merrily on High is of French origin, and is also from the 16th century.
