What songs will we sing?

We’ll explore some fascinating and unusual carols from diverse traditions, with some background history thrown in. In 17th Century UK, the puritans banned singing in churches, so the people went to sing in the pubs. This tradition still goes on to this day. Often using the words we know, the songs are wonderful fresh, fun to sing, very seasonal but not religious. There are also many beautiful medieval carols. Each session with include 2 unusual carols, one well known one, and winter rounds. Expect a wonderful festive feast!
