These songs are based on very simple, unadorned folk carols and spirituals. The intent has been to provide singers and pianists with additional Christmas repertoire based on these genuine American tunes. In most cases, the melodies have been left in their original forms. The accompaniments aim to enhance the vocal lines and express the lyrics, while not adding "extraneous clutter." The style remains folk music.
