In 1978 I spent some time travelling around Berkshire and Wiltshire in the company of fellow folklorist Roly Brown. We were looking for folksingers and, in the village of Urchfont in Wiltshire, we came across William Harding. William gave us a local version of the carol While Shepherd's Watched, the tune to a much rarer carol, Come Christians Now Behold the Lamb, a humorous dialect poem and a reminiscence of a village band. I am happy to say that these recordings can now be heard on-line on the Wiltshire Pop Up Museum web-site, ( The recordings, in four parts, are in the Blog Archive for October, 2011.
