Thread Name: Disappearing Carols
Subject: RE: Disappearing Carols
Before John Kirkpatrick performed at the Barlow last Friday we had carols and mince pies in the bar using a set of carol booklets to help the audience, and I was delegated to supply the instrumental lead. I was surprised to find that no-one there new the carol "Of the father's love begotten" which I remember as being sung quite often when I was a boy in Somerset. Is this a north south divide thing?

My favourite carol for this year has been the Derbyshire one "On the dew besprinkled lawn".
