From: FreddyHeadey
Date: 14 May 18 - 04:53 PM

December 2017
Hark! The Glad Sound of Cornish Carols
    Hilary Coleman and Sally Burley

" ... a record of carols sung throughout Cornwall, in a variety of locations: church, pub, chapel, on the street, in people’s houses and at special occasions such as the Bodmin Wassail, Picrous Eve and St Just Feast – to show how embedded these carols are in their communities. ­"


"Cornish Carols are unique and to have a publication that brings together the essence of that is marvellous. The hours and miles will have been well worth it I am sure."
Roger Gool (Leader of Padstow Carollers)


The book contains two CDs as well as scores and words, the background to the carols, the composers and reminiscences of people who sang them.

£19.99 ISBN 978 1 9999037 0 1
214 pages paperback

> And take a look at your own area! You may be surprised!!

Completely agree. In fact this is very important to us. If you look at the first of our recordings, Awake and Join the Cheerful Choir, that came from our research and comes from Britford in Wilshire. We also took a couple from just over the border in Somerset, the Nailsworth Beasts Song and The Little Young Lambs. We intend to increase the proportion from the local counties year by year.

Chris

PS In our research we found that the only reason the Gloucestershire Wassail wasn't called the Wiltshire Wassail was because the collectors got to Gloucestershire first. So we're claiming that as one of our own too!

Well done. The tradition has been spreading for ages. I know of two sessions in Canada for example and others have also taken up the idea.

It would be nice if some of the other carols from other traditions became more prominent rather than the prominence of the Dungworth and Worrall repertoire.

There are some great carols from Coal Aston, Foolow, Eyam, Odcombe, Padstow, Beeston (Notts) and others.

And take a look at your own area! You may be surprised!!

If you enjoy this sort of carol singing then it's worth starting something in your own area. I'd love to see pub singing all over the place and it only takes a bit of thought and enthusiasm to make it work. www.bradfordonavoncarols.info/ is our web site and it has some photos and recordings from our first go. It won't be the last!

As far as I am aware only Worrall is still available.

I'm currently playing Ian Russell's CD of the singing at Dungworth. Amazing!

Does any 'catter know of commercially available CDs of carols from outside Yorkshire, esp Padstow and Odcombe - focus on 'traditional'?
I have the 'Hope in the Valley' cassette from Sussex, and Stanchester Quire's Christmas CD, and wondered/hoped there might be others esp from the South of England.

Is the first prize really a Christmas pudding? I expect they'll all be out of breath by the time they get to the carols and won't be able to sing!

Don't go looking for Worrell though - it is Worrall.

The sings at Worrall and Dungworth are a bit like Tesco's and Sainsbury's or (more locally, Kashmir Curry Centre/Mangla) People who go to one tend not to go to the other.

And whatever you do don't go up the Loxley Road B6077 this weekend - it is the Percy Pud. A 10k road race right on the way up the carols.

Try the B6076 via Stannington instead.

I don't think that anyone has mentioned the Carolling happening in the Saddleworth area this year.

Delph band club at about 7:00pm after the switching on of the Christmas lights on December 5th, and the Church Inn, above Uppermill at about 7:300pm on December 11th.

This is an attempt to revive a dormant tradition, we'll see if enough people are interested to keep it going.

FolkieDave, thanks very much for confirmation re Coal Aston. I thought it still happened but got conflicting info!

I had heard about the Beeston (Notts)carols - think they emanate from the huge Methodist church on High Rd just round the corner from where I spent my first 5 years.

Don't get over to Beeston as much as I used to as my mum, who lived up the road at Bramcote, passed away earlier this year. What trips I have done have tended to be to the Victoria pub next to Beeston station - no carols but plenty of music, good food, beer and trains - recommended but parking can be dicey, and remember to turn your mobile off!

As gospellers have said,
Beneath signalling skies,
On land dusty to tread,
A trough in a stable
Was the strawy first-bed
Of a divine baby -
The forgiving Godhead.

A season for new hope -
There then and here now;
The yuletide of goodwill -
There then and here now.

In respect of this chance,
Beneath bright or dark skies,
Faith's the star that we glance
Attending Christ's churches
And trying to enhance,
With singing and ritual,
Our God-loving stance.

They do indeed have a tradition at Coal Aston.

What you may not know is that there is one at Beeston, based around a methodist chapel.

If you go to Village Carols website Brightest and Best tells a bit about Beeston and the next one is Coal Aston.

Both of these are based around Methodist churches. It isn't all boozers!!
