Spirited performances from the Hertfordshire Chorus of twenty-three popular carols in new arrangements by Louis Halsey.
Alongside this and before such songs were written down, there was a strong tradition of songs, including what we now call carols, being sung in communities across countries and passed from generation to generation. This resulted in those songs being adapted, arranged and then rearranged as they were passed down. It was when such songs and carols began to be written down and then published that what we now think of as the traditional Christmas carols became widely known. Of course, this was happening around the world and in this selection from Nova! Nova! by Louis Halsey there are English, German, French, Czech, Basque, Welsh and Irish melodies to enjoy.
