"The most festive and just plain Christmassy Revels in years... British folk singer David Jones [was] entirely charming. . . always show-stopping." The Boston GlobeThe Victorian Revels is always an audience favorite, displaying the Dickensian merriment from which so much of our modern Christmas originates. This cast recording from the Cambridge Revels features delightful British singer David Jones, storyteller-singer Maggi Peirce, and Ken Burns' favorite pianist, Jacqueline Schwab. The 23 selections range from beloved carols to impish children's street songs, quaint parlour music to lively music hall favorites. Included are "O Little Town of Bethlehem," "Silent Night," "Little Jack Horner," "Hail to Britannia," "The Twelve Days of Christmas," and "Mrs. Hoolihan's Christmas Cake."
