Subject: Christmas Carol site - sheet music, etc

In trying to find sheet music to answer Pip's question in this thread Tune Req: The Holly and the Ivy IN PARTS I stumbled on the Christmas Carol music site with free sheet music, various versions, including the notation for instruments in different keys.

This is their blurb:

No other web site offers all of these features:

    All of it is free! No hidden costs, no teasers, no bait-and-switch.

    Sheet music for every carol, in standard PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format. No need to purchase or download special software!

    Sheet music in 4 parts (SATB) for most carols. Just the thing for caroling!

    Lead sheets (melody, chords & lyrics) for most carols.

    Additional guitar lead sheets in easy keys, when the piano lead sheet is in a horrible key for novice guitarists.

    Instrumental parts for C, F, Bb, and Eb instruments. Play in 4 parts with any combination of instruments!

    MIDI files for every carol (so you can hear what they sound like), with both 4-part (SATB) and melody-only versions.

    New! A list of CD's where you can hear each carol, with easy links to buy them from, and (in most cases) a sound clip of a sample of the carol from the CD.

    Background music only when you ask for it, instead of playing automatically whether you want it or not!

    Lyric sheets for every carol. (Okay, so this is no big deal, but this site wouldn't be complete without them.)

    Credits (author, composer, translator, arranger) for every carol.

    No obnoxious animations or pop-up ads.

    And did we mention that all of it is free?

Please note, also, that I don't know the answer to Pip's question about The Holly & the Ivy, so any more insights, expertise, information, comments would be greatly appreciated. I have declared myself as making guesses only.

Blip there - went before I HAD TIME TO WRITE ANYTHING (fLIPPING cAPSLOCK...!)

You have the wrong link - it goes to John Boden's web site.
Maybe a joeclone can correct link and delete my posting.
Correct link (found by google when some of the text searched for) seems to be

It's a nice site. At first it baffled me, because nothing seemed to come up when clicked. Then I realized that the music was appearing at the bottom of my screen, out of view till I scrolled down.

I'm working on 'Watchmen, Tell us of the Night." The gang is going to like it.

Sorry about that, GtD. The Jon Boden site relates to the Holly & the Ivy thread.
