It may interest you to know that Holst, who was born in Gloucestershire, named the tune 'Cranham' which is the name of an exceptionally pretty Gloucestershire village with an exceptionally good pub which welcomes live music. I have sung the carol in the Stroud valley with the lights of Cranham in the distance. Very atmospheric.
