The New Oxford Book of Carols is a comprehensive anthology of Christmas carols, edited by Hugh Keyte and Andrew Parrott, and intended to supplement if not supersede the original Oxford Book of Carols of 1928. This thoroughly documented text contains notes on sources, histories and variants of carols from a wide variety of sources; it is usable not only as a book for carol singing, but as a reference book as well. A Shorter New Oxford Book of Carols was issued in 1992, and other selections have been made.
