Today's Christmas cd/A Victorian Christmas

Robin Petrie/A Victorian Christmas/1991

This is one of my old Christmas standbys. I play it every year and never tire of its gentle beauty. The liner notes offer a fascinating history of carols in general, and the cd's carols in particular. There is also information about the hammered dulcimer, which was known as the piano harp in Victorian times. You may hear clips here.

There is some info on Robin Petrie here and here.
