Subject: More Carols on BBC from Sheffield

This should take you to the repeat of a programme called "The Truth About Carols" broadcast on BBC 2 this evening at 5.00 pm or thereabouts.

It includes lots of folk interest: Bella Hardy singing the Coventry Carol; Rollo Wood; and a prolonged piece from the Blue Ball Worrall where there is a Sunday sing similar to The Royal Hotel @ Dungworth.

The main un-named talking head is Pete Civico (ex-Grenoside and ex-Sheffield City Morris) who can also be seen in an Air New Zealand advert!! Other faces people may recognise included Peter Wood - who has just written a book about the Elliots of Birtley (that's him buying a pint) and Jack Crawford who is on the EFDSS National Exec. and has just put out a record on Wildgoose called "Pride of the Season". Academic researcher Julia Bishop is playing the organ (best known for her work on the Carpenter Collection). Various other people from the Sheffield folk scene.

Yes indeed Dave saw it and again on playback

Hadn't noted that it was Julia Bishop, clocked Pete Wood buying a pint Pete and Val Civico, Annie and Pete Smith, Gordon Hoyland, John Fowler and of course an interview with Ian Russell the Sheffield Carolling expert!!

Good to see the higher exposure level of folk music in the UK and the undoubted influence of active folkies in preserving the English Tradition

This stuff is getting about, y'know. Last week I heard a band playing "Sweet Chiming Bells" in my local (southern) shopping centre. If this keeps up we won't have anything left to call our own ... hang on, that can't be quite right ... *grin*

Well spotted - I shall add the names of Alec Thompson (Grenoside and Sheffield City Morris) and his brother Haydn - who dances NW with Rumworth.

I ought to have added Bella Hardy's singing was immaculate. Well done (another local-ish lass).

What an excellent programme - I just finished watching it. Thanks for the link.
I can add Hoy, Orkney to the list of places where you can now hear Sweet Chiming Bells. I passed on the Voices at the Door version to the pub choir leader last year and it is now in the choir repertoire with the accompaniment of tubular bells and temple bells!
Hope to be back south to join in the session at Upper Denby on New Years Day.
Cath

Sweet Chiming Bells has been a staple part of Salvation Army band repertoires for many a long year.

Mrs T heard "Sweet Chiming Bells" on Songs of Praise a couple of weeks back.

Looks very good, downloading now. Can someone explain to me how I get a download speed at the moment from the BBC Iplayer of up to 410KB/sec and yet no more than 10KB/sec from a general Bittorent tracker?

I didn't know that, Fred, so thanks for the info. The particular band wasn't Salvation Army, but they may well have got it from them.

Many of the local carol tunes have been picked up by the brass bands who play them at Christmas in shopping centres (malls)and similar venues

Kate Rusby has been promoting the Sheffield Carols on "Good Morning Sunday" on Radio 2 for a few weeks - coinciding with her own album, based on the same.
