The Albion Christmas Band - Hark the Herald Angels Sing. The Albion Christmas Band - Holly and the Ivy. The Albion Christmas Band - Past Three O'Clock. Read full description. See details and exclusions. I had always put on a traditional choral Christmas Carols album over Christmas but following Kate Rusby's excellent "Sweet Bells" CD I wanted to try another traditional folk style album and this fits the bill brilliantly. I wanted to recreate the country village pub sound with regional tunes to well known carols and carols that reflect a Christmas feel whilst being almost pagan in historical origin - the Wassail type of song. The band are all seasoned musicians and excellent, Kellie While's voice is stunning. An album I am very pleased to own and would recommend to anyone.
Let’s take for instance this aptly timed recording courtesy of the Albion Christmas Band. Secondly any album featuring the combined talents of Kellie While, Simon Care, Ashley Hutchings and Simon Nicol is always worthwhile checking out. As well as the established First Nowell, Hark The Herald Angels Sing and the stark beauty of In the Bleak Midwinter there are lesser-known gems such as Past Three O’Clock and God Bless The Master.
