Initially, the link between Wencelas, a 10th century Bohemian Duke, and da blues was not evident. After reading that he was a pious ruler who favored the poor and on his way to mass was killed by his brother at age 25-28 years, what’s not da blues about that.

Wencelas was posthumously declared a saint, a martyr and a king. He was declared a good king in 19th century by British hymnwriter John Mason Neale.

Added some very lofi Librivox carolers to enforce the Christmas Caroling vibe

Tried a new technique. Used Izotope RX Rebalancing on the lofi 64kb mp3 Librivox recording of Good King Wencelas to remove or diminish much of the non vocal material.

Yes, the bass is overdriven.
