Popular Christmas Carols

These pieces were popular between the 15th and the 18th century. The Christmas carols were originally pagan songs with a chorus, with a popular origin and harmonized with several voices. They began to be sung later in churches and be associated specifically with Christmas.

Today, with the declining of the old form of the Christmas carol, the term passed to refer to simply a song whose lyrics refers to Christmas and that it is sung traditionally in December and at Christmas.
