I've been asked to sing some Christmas songs at the church carol concert. What would you suggest? Wassails too maybe?

Artisan "Stuff the Turkey".

Loads of Sheffield carols would fit the bill.

For a real challenge try Kris Kringle - it took me years to get that one during our carol singing jaunts round south Bradford!

Stan Accringtons "Three Wise Women " takes a lot of beating for a really silly Christmas song as does "There are No lights on Our Christmas Tree" or the Aussie "Bush Turkey" is just as funny

It feels like winter, Spit to eat and hell to pay,
It feels like Reynardine on Boxing day

Would it being a church concert rule out pagan songs and, posibly Wassails? My best guess is that they would want popular songs, or at least songs that are recognisable or that people can relate to.

May be best to stick to cliched stuff such as Frosty the Snowman or Winter Wonderland but for something different Steeleye Span do some good stuff on their Winter CD.

One of my favourites is Anne Sofie von Otters Home for Christmas. I also used to have a copy of Magpie Lane's Wassail - A Country Christmas but I dunno where it is:-9

If you want any more info feel free to ask me.

Cheers
