In the village pubs of small towns around Sheffield, England, enthusiastic singers continue a centuries-old tradition of secular Christmas carol singing. Older than the more familiar Victorian conception of carols, and excluded from the church services, these village carols are performed unaccompanied or with only a few instruments. Recorded live in the pubs, filled with the spontaneous joys of singers, the clinking of glasses, and murmur of the other patrons, these are a unique and beautiful form of holiday cheer and community expression. 71 minutes, photos, map, and a 28-page booklet.
