Copyright to this printed edition of Loreena McKennitt’s composition is owned by Quinlan Road Limited and is provided to you for your personal private use only. Any publication, reproduction, transcription, or use of this edition in a public performance without the express prior consent of Quinlan Road Music is strictly prohibited. Please contact Quinlan Road at postmaster@quinlanroad.com or by telephone at 1-800-361-7959 or 1-519-273-3876 to inquire about permissions.

These sheet music arrangements have been prepared in the spirit of Loreena’s recordings.

Although these are accurate, easy to play arrangements which in their simplicity will sound lovely on their own, you will get the most out of the music if you use the printed page as a guide to doing your own personal arrangements.

The vocal and instrumental melodies are accurately transcribed just as Loreena recorded them.

For the accompaniments, feel free to improvise on the written parts using the printed notes or chord symbols as a guide.

For the instrumental songs, you may also substitute any melodic instrument for any of the written melodies.

For those pieces that incorporate a hand percussion part feel free to use any combination of hand drums or percussion to accompany the song. The rhythms provided here are just guides to the basic rhythm of the arrangement and will sound best if you add your own variations.

The most important thing is to have fun with the music and to enjoy playing Loreena’s compositions and arrangements in the joyous spirit of how they were created.

The King LYRICS

Health, love and peace be all here in this place By your leave we shall sing, concerning our King

Our King is well-dressed in silks of the best In ribbons so rare no king can compare

We have travelled many miles over hedges and stiles In search of our King unto you we bring.

We have powder and shot to conquer the lot We have cannon and ball to conquer them all.

Old Christmas is past, twelve tide is the last And we bid you adieu, great joy to the new
