ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The musicians of the Colonial Hearth Players researched all the music on this album. The album insert has a blurb for each track to give the source, or date the tune/song as closely as possible.

Much of this Christmas music will be recognizable to modern listeners since these Christmas carols have survived for centuries. The songs would have been learned aurally, much as children in our modern day learn to sing them, and be played on instruments that would have been simple to transport....Violin, flute, flageolet, recorder, drums. Harpsichords would have been found in the homes of the wealthy.

We present them to you with best wishes for a joyous yuletide!
