GUEST,Derek Schofield Disappearing Carols (61* d) RE: Disappearing Carols 13 Dec 15

I suppose there are several different carol "traditions". The community carols that DMcG refers to, as well as the local carols that are familiar from the South Yorkshire and NE Derbyshire repertoires, plus similar carols to the latter in Odcombe, Padstow, and - in the past - many communities ... would be great for more people to dig these out. Then there's the so-called folk carols beloved by Sharp and RVW.

To reassure Mike Yates, Don in Yon Forest (collected by RVW in the early 20th century in Castleton) is still sung there ... I was in the pub in Castleton last Sunday for their annual village sing (now supported by a lot of people from outside Castleton) and it was sing - as was All in the Morning.
