Matthew Edwards Traditional Regional Christmas Carols (19) RE: Traditional Regional Christmas Carols 14 Nov 12

In the North West of England Paul Guppy of the Gladly Solemn West Gallery choir and David Burbidge of Lakeland Voices have done a lot of work researching and singing carols from Lancashire and Cumbria. I don't know of any CDs, but I think that there are some performances on YouTube.

Ian Russell at Village Carols has done a lot to promote and support different local carol traditions; the Welsh plygain singing was featured at the Festival of Village Carols in 2008, while at the same Festival in 2006 we were treated to the Wexford carols by the traditional singers from Kilmore - both of these appear on DVDs issued by Garland films. Sain Records have published more recordings of traditional plygain singing.


I'll check YouTube for any carols from the English North West, but I think Greg Stephens has also posted some of the Penkhull carols performances on YouTube too.
