Stainton's Christmas Carol

Posted by John Gray on November 17, 2011 at 4:50 AM Comments comments ()

During the early part of the last century, Ralph Vaughn Williams was travelling the country in search of local folk songs.  He stayed in Stainton during this time as a guest of the Rev Gatty.

Whilst at the Vicarage he was given two songs by John Thomas, which included a Christmas Carol not recorded anywhere else in the country.

So, we have a unique Christmas Carol, from 1907.  See the Carol on its own page
