The songs come from an age when the midwinter season was a time for joyous celebration and vigorous expression of older, perhaps pagan, religious ideas. There is not always a clear line between these and the rejoicing at the birth of Jesus bringing a fresh light into the world at this dark midwinter time.

Carols, wassails and songs for the Christmas season in a traditional folk style, a cappella or with fiddles, accordions, concertinas, whistles and the like; The 6th CD from this popular band. Nowell Sing We Clear, based in Vermont, USA, has been touring its annual midwinter program since 1975. See www.nowellsingweclear.co for the current tour schedule.
