Wassail Epicenter

I am also contemplating a page of "ancient" wassails. if your wassail has been going for more than a decade get me a paragraph write up and permission to include. I need some form of documentation- periodical article, citation in text......trying to be accurate

WASSAIL

This is probably my favourite song to sing of all that I sing!
I Love It.

Thanks for the songs, Dick and Anahata. We've got a wassail night at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club on 8th. January with firelight, candlelight, home-made Twelfth Cake and a wassail bowl. Entrance is £3 and everyone's welcome, especially if you'd like to sing or play.

There will be wassail and winter songs, plus a few unexploded carols which people haven't been able to relieve themselves of because the snow cancelled a lot of events this year.

I'm trying to learn The Miraculous Harvest, but won't do it unless it's properly bedded in by Saturday. It's part of the Child ballad The Carnal and the Crane and appears in the Oxford Book of Carols with a wonderful tune.

Foxwhelp Morris led a stunning one last night at the Roast Ox in Painscastle. On 17th, a MIGHTY one coming up at the Yew Tree, Preston on Wye; west of Hereford. Torches, bonfires, shooting the spirits and a lot of singing; possible play - you'll need a shoehorn to get in the pub after. Brilliant!

I hope you have as much fun in Whimple and Preston on Wye as we did in Lewes last night. Obviously our style was slightly cramped by not having an apple tree in the room, but we did have a comedy shotgun thanks to Bryan TheSnail Creer, and all the cake and wassail bowl went.

We also had some unusual new year carols and winter songs. An evening with a wonderful atmosphere, enhanced by the firelight and candlelight.

Anyone looking for new songs should enjoy Ali Burns' new book of carols and winter songs The Merits of Gold.

"This is the second collection of traditional carols and winter songs that I've arranged for choirs, workshops or small singing groups, mostly in three and four part harmony. Some of the songs are very old with variations and versions winding back hundreds of years; some are new but based on old text found along the way as part of my research and hunting out of old carols and some I've written specifically for workshops and performances as 'opening', 'closing' and processional carols."
