Matthew Edwards Blitherscrum Festival 2014 A new start! (62* d) RE: Blitherscrum Festival 2014 A new start! 24 Dec 13

Is anybody joining me tonight for the Blitherscrum carols? These are traditionally performed after the midnight service at the Church of the Apocryphal Virgin. The singers go from house to house through the night in all weathers, finishing at Old Jones's farmhouse up Rapperty Bank in Lower Blitherscrum. The singers usually meet first at the Plumber's Armpit for a brief rehearsal so I do hope that some of you will make it there.

The old carols sung in Blitherscrum include such gems as:-
Sweet Belles
Wild Shepherds
Jacob's Not Very Well
Wobbly Hark
Blitherscrum:- 'While Shepherds Watched' sung (more or less) to the tune of 'John Brown's Body'
and not forgetting the beautiful 'Home on the Blither' which never fails to bring tears to the eyes of listeners.
