Kate Rusby’s revisiting of carols such as While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night with the different melodies and arrangements from regional England demonstrate how a familiar set of words can be interpreted and expressed by different communities of faith. This one was recorded on her album Holly Head as While Shepherds Watched 6.
Salute The Morn is the carol Christians Awake, Salute The Happy Morn (here styled People Awake…) from Kate Rusby’s album Holly Head. We awoke, we saluted, soon we will slumber, and tomorrow will be another morn where the Saviour of the world will greet us and bid us live in the mystery of God’s love.
Christmas Is Merry, a track from Holly Head, Kate Rusby’s latest (and fifth!) album of Christmas folk songs.
A charming rendition of I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas from Kate Rusby. It is possible that some people have never heard this song. This should happily rectify that.
