Thak you for sharing those; some of the older carols are lovely (I've always had a particular soft spot for The Holly and the Ivy). In connection to your other thread, various living history museums and historic houses over here have Wassailing events - and they always sell out quickly.

Yours,
Miranda.

Might I offer a few seasonal-themed amusing Edwardian short stories to go with the music?

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

And here I was hoping to learn what all the fuzz about Venusian Christmas Carols was about...
