Thread Name: Disappearing Carols
Subject: Disappearing Carols
I've just raised another thread about a carol, and that has spurred me into another moan about carols getting lost. Yes, a huge number we lost in the years after the publication of 'Hymns Ancient and Modern', but it is not those I am thinking of. There are carols that were quite common in my childhood and even only a decade or so ago, that I rarely hear now. For example, "See amid the Winter's snow" seems to have largely faded from the national repertoire in the UK: I can't think of a carol concert in the last ten years I've been to (apart from special folkie ones) where it has been sung.

What carols from your lifetime seem to be disappearing?
