Subject: RE: While Shepherds Watched/Ilkley Moor
From the early 20th century until at least the 1960's, "The Miner's Dream of Home" was sung at doors on New Year's Eve in Sheffield - it functioned as a New Year carol. I heard it as a child in the north of Sheffield and still remember the sound of it echoing down a very frosty street when I was in bed.
