Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 12/10/99, p.113
"...from the caroling stronghold around the town of Sheffield, and several of the 22 songs are as beautiful as any of those you grew up on." - Rating: B+


Product Description:

Recorded live in village pubs around Sheffield, England, from 1983 to 1997.
Contains 22 tracks.
A bright collection of warm field recordings, these traditional carols are presented with the style that Smithsonian Folkways has become known for: clear documentation, informative liner notes, and a real sense of living history. Primarily a cappella or with sparse organ accompaniment, the carolers themselves will never be mistaken for professional singers, but their genuine passion for singing and sense of community is evident and pervasive. The performances themselves are reminiscent of the boisterous joy of sacred harp or "shape note" singing and really bring the feel of a crowded English pub on a brisk December eve. ~ Zac Johnson
