Good Christian Men, Rejoice sheet music

Good Christian Men, Rejoice is based on the 14th century carol In Dulci Jubilo, which was rediscovered in England in the 1800s. The original carol was in both Latin and German and was translated to English by John Mason Neale. The melodies of the two carols are almost exactly the same, except that there is one additional measure in Good Christian Men, Rejoice. After the sixth measure of the song, the words “News! News!” were added, making the second phrase five measures in length. Apparently, the addition of these two notes was the result of a copying error when the song was published in 1853. The carol has been performed so many times with the erroneous two notes included that they have become a standard part of the song. For the text to the carol, see the lyrics page of Good Christian Men, Rejoice.
