Village Carols recordings
« on: November 21, 2020, 01:14:43 am »
There's a great thread going on over in Neil's Village Carols Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/VillageCarols/), about recordings of the carols.  I thought it might be useful to compile a list of Ian Russell's Village Carols recordings - some are still available from http://www.villagecarols.org.uk/publications/index.html - Ian's paper "Working with tradition" was very useful for dates etc.
