Carols For All Seasons

Carols For All Seasons is an album by Jean Ritchie. It was recorded with two classical musicians, which is not unusual for the late 1950s. The sound anticipates the slightly baroque arrangements that Shirley Collins would later use on Anthems in Eden. As well as some often heard carols, there are some rare ones ("Dame Get up and Bake Your Pies") and four unique ones - carols that Jean had learned while she was a child in the Appalachian mountains. In particular "Cherry Tree of Cumberland" has a haunting quality. "The Flower Carol" (Tempus adest floridum) is the song that originally owned the tune "Good King Wenceslas" before Rev J.M. Neale substituted new words in 1853. It is very rarely heard. At the time Jean was the only singer to accompany herself on mountain dulcimer. This can heard on "Children Go Where I Send Thee" and "The May Day Carol". Liner notes by Jean Ritchie. The original title in 1959 was "Carols of All Seasons". It was reissued in 1997.

Famous quotes containing the words seasons and/or carols:

    There is no single face in nature, because every eye that looks upon it, sees it from its own angle. So every mans spice-box seasons his own food.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
    Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and
    strong,
    The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
    The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off
    work,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
