The Traditional Carols Project will be 6 two-hour workshops in which you will learn Traditional Christmas Carols in 2-4 part harmony. On the 7th week we will perform the carols in a short informal concert and then sing in some pubs around bath. Everything will be taught by ear so you don’t need to be able to read music. There are no auditions and you don’t need any prior experience, just a love for singing and some Christmas cheer!
The Singing of Traditional Carols dates back to the seventeenth Century when church choirs would earn some money by singing at people’s houses. It is characterised by simple, robust harmonies and catchy tunes. The tradition still survives in the area around Sheffield, and in Cornwall, Exmoor and Somerset.
