After a few months off, we are starting to dust-off for 2012. We also hope some of these songs may be heard and sung and some mumming be played and mummed this Christmas. If you’d like to be involved, can contribute to site, would like to invite us to sing songs, etc. or have events to put in the diary please get in touch.
Added Sep-2012 Christ came to Christmas, plus wassails from Brockweir, Badminton, Hampton Fields, Shurdington, Uley and Tetbury, with words of the songs plus archive recordings. [Transcriptions to follow later]
