Thread Name: Traditional Regional Christmas Carols
Subject: RE: Traditional Regional Christmas Carols
Carolyn Robson (of Craig Morgan Robson) recently ran (with two of her daughters) a one day session in Andover on Hampshire Carols that included several carols collected by Dr. Gardiner, including "Hark hark let us behold" collected from George Blake. This carol has been arranged by my wife (Jan Elliott) and she played Recorders on the version I recorded several years ago.

The are some very good carols collected in the area, particularly from James Lake of Dummer and there is also a choir from Winchester - Far From The Madding Crowd - who perform often locally.
Carolyn told me that there were 60 people at the Andover event, including Leader Eddie Upton (Bass) and Paul Hutchinson (on Band).
