Vaughan Williams had begun collecting folk-songs and carols in 1903.
Many Folk-songs and Carols were collected in the early 1900s by Vaughan Williams and Ella Mary Leather who visited local gypsies in Herefordshire where together they rescued traditional songs that may well have disappeared forever.
These songs and carols remind us of our childhood and the power and beauty of songs sung by those generations long before our own.

“Derek Welton has a rich yet flexible voice. It sounds effortless and I could listen to him all day. He is sensitively accompanied by Iain Burnside, and the recording is vibrant and well balanced.”
