Thread Name: Pub carols lyrics & tunes sources needed
Subject: Pub carols lyrics & tunes sources needed
We were chatting at Morris practice about the gig next Thursday - another side is dancing at a pub we dance at and invited us. This is the pub's Advent gig. So someone said 'we could do some pub carols.'
In deepest Surrey, said by some to be the stockbroker belt, we do have some obvious local sources: http://www.guildfordvox.org.uk/lyrics.htm for the Christmassy bit and half-way down the page at http://www.pilgrimmorrismen.org.uk/diary.php for the half-a-dozen links to their 12th Night song-sheets.
Shepherds to the Ilkley Moor tune is standard, of course, and some of us know Shepherds Rejoice from William Seal in Leicestershire via Lester Simpson. Try saying that fast....
I have seen some individual pub carols mentioned in Mudcat threads and of course many references to pub dates in and around Sheffield.
What would be nice to find would be a collection - or just suggestions for carols we might absorb from elsewhere. Can't find this as such, so I think a new thread may be in order.
Any ideas, please?
