Subject: RE: List Your Favorite Folk Christmas Songs
The wonderfully pagan "Ring Out, Solstice Bells", by Jethro Tull.

And "Masters in this Hall", as done by Pete Seeger, who notes that it was a favourite of William Morris.

And how can anyone mention Bing Crosby and "The Little Drummer Boy" in the same breath without thinking of the version with David Bowie, which also mixes in "Peace on Earth".

And oh yes: "Go Tell it on the Mountain" as done by Simon & Garfunkel.

Cheers, Hester
