The Daily Telegraph Book of Carols

Editat de Ian Bradley
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 18 Oct 2006
The carol, with its origins in folk dances and pagan festivities is a far more earthy and exuberant creation than the hymn.  It is associated with sociable occasions, story telling and the pleasures of festive eating and drinking.  Oliver Cromwell tried to outlaw carol-singing in seventeenth-century England, and in Scotland during the sixteenth century carols were associated with witchcraft.
 The living tradition of carols, ever changing and constantly being expanded is celebrated in Ian Bradley/s enjoyable and varied collection of over 100 songs.  It reflects the richness of the genre both chronologically and geographically, placing each carol in its historical context.  From the fifteenth-century 'boar's head' carol to more modern expressions of faith which refer to space travel, form African-American spirituals and a Caribbean calypso carol to old favourites like 'O Come All ye Faithful' and 'Away in a Manger', here are new and well known songs to read and sing along to, long-lost verses to add to your repertoire, fascinating anecdotes, stories to enjoy and tidings of comfort and joy for all.v

6    All my heart this night rejoices
7    Angels from the realms of glory
8    Arise and hail the sacred day
9    As with gladness men of old

30  Hark, hark, what news the angels bring
31    Hark how all the welkin rings
32    Hark, the herald angels sing!
33  Here we come a wassailing
34  How brightly shines the morning star
35   I saw three ships
36   I wonder as I wander
37      In dulci jubilo
38      In the bleak mid-winter
39      Infant holy, infant lowly

41      It's rounded like an orange
42      Joseph was an old man
43      Joy to the world
44  Let earth and heaven combine
45  Little Jesus, sweetly sleep
