The Bitter Withy (and God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman in Dm)

I’ve been tremendously impressed by Kerfuffle and their album, Lighten the Dark, is the answer to Christmas carols. So with thanks to Jane and Jon for their help in transcribing these tunes, here is the music for the Bitter Withy (a lovely irreverent take on the young Jesus, who sounds more like a Greek god, with an element of class hatred thrown in) and the music for God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (in D minor so that it fits as a bridging riff for the Bitter Withy). In the hope that we improve in trying to copy our betters… listen to Kerfuffle.
