Carols and Songs

The Village Carolers

Repertoire - Select Your Era

Our current Victorian-era repertoire list includes the following carols and songs which were available to caroling groups in the Victorian era (circa 1905 or before). Carols with an asterisk (*) after them indicate carols where we will sing one verse in the original language, and follow with verses in English. Carols with a red superscript ‘s‘ are not overtly Christian in nature and are appropriate for more secular performances.

We have removed a few of our items from this list as we have limited rehearsal time this year due to the pandemic.
