Sing old Kent carols

carolling 1

The carols are fun to learn, and we’re planning to sing them at two evenings of carol singing with song sheets in the pub at the Unicorn, Marden from 8.30pm on the two Sundays before Christmas 2016 – that’s the 11th and the 18th December.

We’re all used to hearing the same few carols each year – but actually there are many more around the country. Most of the ones we’ll be singing come from a book of lost local carols Arise and Hail the Happy Day researched and edited by George Frampton, and published by the Faversham Society.

I’d like to thank George Frampton, Helen Mitcham and Adrian Waters for their help in sourcing this material.
