New Gloucestershire carol site

The folklorist Gwilym Davies has created a new web site Gloucestershire Christmas, containing a list of carols (with music), and a list of events (carol singing, mummers plays and wassailing).

A report from Canada...

Since 2002 we have been singing the Sheffield carols in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

This year we are singing from 7pm–9pm on Sundays 27 November, 4, 11 and 18 December at The Portsmouth Tavern in Kingston. We sing from the WMVC Blue book and the Canadian Pub Caroller which was published by the Ottawa Folklore Centre a few years ago in co-operation with the WMVC. In fact 'our' carols have been sung in Ottawa, at Patty's Pub, since 1990.

New Village Carols releases

Ian Russell has produced a new, expanded edition of his The Sheffield Book of Village Carols, available in both paperback and hardback. A collection of Derbyshire carols is in preparation, with the hope that it will be available in 2012.

The recording On This Delightful Morn, from Foolow, and long out of print, is being re-issued in CD format.
