Like many of the traditional carols we perform at Christmas, the composer of God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen is not known. This carol is unlike most Christmas music in one respect, though: it is in a minor mode. Songs in minor modes are often considered to be dark, sad, or stormy, and therefore, most festive Christmas carols are in a major mode. While God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen conveys a mood of seriousness, it still expresses a bright, uplifting feeling.
