I am putting together a quiz for a music club. Can anyone think of any carols that mention a musical instrument apart from bells? For example,Mary's Boy child mentions trumpets and Deck the halls mentions harps.

The Twelve Days of Christmas

On the eleventh day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
11 Pipers Piping
10 Lords a Leaping
9 Ladies Dancing
8 Maids a Milking
7 Swans a Swimming
6 Geese a Laying
5 Golden Rings
4 Calling Birds
3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Here Comes Santa Claus

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus right down Santa Claus Lane
He'll come around when chimes ring out that it's Christmastime again
Peace on earth will come to all if we just follow the light
So let's give thanks to the Lord above, 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Assuming drums count as musical instruments :p, there's always "The Little Drummer Boy".

Here are a couple more that are pretty obvious:

Trumpets mentioned in Mary's Boy Child
( merry ) organ mentioned in The holly and the ivy
