Odcombe Carollers

Carol Workshop at Edale in the Peak District

Saturday 22 Decmber 2018

The Old Chapel, 2.00 – 5.00 pm

Leader – Ian Russell at the invitation of Bella Hardy

The workshop is open to enthusiasts for the local carolling traditions. It will help participants learn the vocal parts of favourite carols from village traditions in the Peak District. Music and words for ten carols will be provided. No special expertise is required, just enthusiasm for the carols and a willingness to join in. All the carols will be pitched to fall within the range of normal voices, as in the pubs where many of these traditions thrive. Based on the manuscripts used by village carollers, the arrangements have been specially prepared and edited by Ian and are taken from The Derbyshire Book of Village Carols.

Here’s what we’re singing:
