Music from Christmases Past

Tamsin Lewis & Passamezzo will be on BBC4 on 18 December on Howard Goodall’s “The Truth About Christmas Carols” riding around the Houses of Parliament on a bus, and singing The World Turned Upside Down – a ballad about the banning of Christmas in the 17thC.

Matthew Spring will be playing the lute, Eleanor Cramer bass viol, Martin Ritchie singing, and I’ll be fiddling.
