Good King Wenceslas look'd out ?
On the Feast of Stephen,?
When the snow lay round about,?
Deep and crisp and even...?
Almost everybody can sing the first few lines of this popular Christmas carol. But how many know what happens after the good King looks out? It is what the King sees, and his reaction to the sight, that sets the delightful tale in motion: King Wenceslas and his page go to aid a poor man, and in the end they receive a special blessing of their own. In exquisite hand-painted woodcuts, artist Christopher Manson skillfully renders the medieval setting and characters. Biographical notes on John Mason Neale and the historical King Wenceslas, along with the music and complete words to the carol, ensure that Good King Wenceslas will become a traditional part of every family's Christmas celebration.
