A Victorian Christmas

A Victorian Christmas

This collection lovingly restores 45 Victorian carols to a thoroughly authentic holiday context: the parlors and hearths of Victorian homes, where the hammered dulcimer, or piano harp, as it was known, was a favorite instrument for musical evenings. A Victorian Christmas offers a delightful assortment of the popular carols of the day, from those still well known today, including The First Nowell, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Greensleeves, The Holly and the Ivy, and The Wassail Song, to a treasure trove of lesser-known gems, including The Cherry Tree Carol, The Carnal and the Crane, My Dancing Day, The Praise of Christmas, The Furry Day Carol, and The Sans Day Carol.
