Two musical stars perform The Wexford Carol.

Musical stars Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma come together in this music video to perform The Wexford Carol, a traditional Irish Christmas carol dating back to the 12th century. It is often known by its first verse, "Good people all this Christmas time." A musical director named William Gratten Flood brought the hymn back to life at the turn of last century when he had the song transcribed and then published in the Oxford Book of Carols.
