I'm glad to say our Christmas 2016 Multi-Arts Workshop material will feature in the *Christingle Service* on December 11th at Victoria Park Baptist Church, South Bristol, UK.  

It's all quite simple this time - I'll be playing Melodion and Shruti Box and musicians Paul Midgley and Monika Kralj will be playing other wonderful instruments - and participants, from local Primary and Secondary schools, will be dancing....a folk dance to match the Folk genre of this carol, known as The Sussex Carol.  By way of contrast and as referenced in the title of this post, I've written a slow, reflective section for the middle of this piece (not included below).

The tune of the Sussex Carol  - below - was discovered and documented by Cecil Sharp at the beginning of the Twentieth Century.
