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.
