A little song for Solstice

By Chris Squire and Alan White of 'Yes'. 'Run with the Fox'. A very good bass cover. Re recorded (So I am informed) in 2007 by Chris Squire's Swiss Choir. Good Christmas song from the early 80's. Used to be on a video jukebox in my local pub many moons ago.

The melody originates from the 'Sussex carol', one of those rare tunes that actually might tempt even a hardened atheist into church. Although the thought does occur that the original tune (Lyrics penned by a Bishop Wadding in the 1600's) might well reach back into pagan folklore. Still a good tune though.

Happy solstice.
