Just Say Nowell

 

"John Roberts and Tony Barrand...[have] an exquisite knack for transporting us into the ambience of ancient songs without seeming the least affected. Their singing [is] lusty, pleasantly reedy, and melodically crisp." -The Boston Globe

John Roberts and Tony Barrand are among the most beloved British folk singers on either side of the pond, and frequent Revels stars. Their own annual Nowel Sing We Clear shows are Revels-ian pagents of midwinter mirth, pretty carols, and lore exploring the ancient midwinter rites from which our modern Christmas grew. The Nowell cast also includes Fred Breunig and Andy Davis, and this 2000 Golden Hind CD brims with friendly cheer, handsome harmonies, and rare traditional mastery. The 16 songs include "The Truth from Above," "The First Nowell," "The Holly and the Ivy," "Joy to the World," and "Sound, Sound Your Instruments of Joy."
