Synopsis

Product Description
A Christmas Carol
Music from the streets and churches of Victorian England A 3 cd box set featuring music from the sophisticated drawing room to the nursery and out onto the streets, with the sounds of church bells, music boxes and robust carol singers. A unique blend of refined and unusual Christmas music. CD1 Carols for a Victorian Christmas The Victorians almost re-invented Christmas trees and carol singing after decades of neglect of our major festival. This recording assembles a variety of Victorian Christmas music from the sounds of street musicians to drawing room songs, from Polyphons and organs to bells and church choirs. CD2 A Childhood Christmas Victorian carols and music. An old fashioned programme of Christmas songs and carols that children will love to listen to. From the story of 'Cock Robin' to well-known Christmas carols, with a fascinating mix of sounds - bells, music boxes, accordions and pianos. CD3 Wassail Hearty songs and music for Christmas. Carol singers stamping their feet against the cold, and singing their hearts out. Songs and carols old and new in cheerful Christmas celebration, with amazing instrumental accompaniment on fiddles, melodeons, drums and pipes.
