21 West Gallery Carols from Oxfordshire Villages\nCompiled & Edited by Dave Townsend\n\nDiscover the lost heritage of authentic Oxfordshire Christmas Carols. These were sung by the old West Gallery bands that provided the music for many rural parish churches in the area in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, a mix of powerful voices, strings and wind instruments, with vigorous rhythms, soaring counterpoint and strange harmonies. It includes carols from Adderbury, Bampton, Charlbury, Great Milton, Hook Norton, Marsh Baldon, Marsh Gibbon and Upper Wardington.\n\nThese are carols for everyone, wherever convivial and warm-hearted music is appreciated.
