We were delighted to invite KB Wedding Videography to record one of the pieces that we are doing for our Xmas concert, "A Christmas Story".  The Somerset Carol is now available to see on our You Tube channel. This traditional carol was discovered by Cecil Sharp when he visited Bridgwater during the English Folk Song revival in the early 20th Century. It was subsequently used by Vaughan Williams in his Fantasia on Christmas Carols.
