This piece is the first of a set of "Three Carol Preludes" by Richard Purvis.
A summary of his life and career can be found at, so I won't repeat it here, but two salient facts deserve mention. Early in his career, he played a nightly radio broadcast on a 7 rank Wurtlizer organ.

This does much to explain his choice of registration for these pieces.
