Steeleye Span: The Boar's Head Carol

The Boar's Head Carol, says Wikipedia, is a 15th-century English carol that describes the ancient tradition of sacrificing a boar and presenting its head at a Yuletide feast. The version of the carol most usually performed today is based on one published in 1521.

Steeleye Span issued this version as a Christmas single in 1977. but failed to repeat the success of Gaudete in 1973.
