Two Christmas Carols - Carolyn Robson

Two Christmas Carols

These two carols were arranged by Carolyn Robson for an event held at The Stables, Wavendon, in 2013.  The carols were taken from The Full English digital archive and were both chosen because of their geographical proximity to The Stables.
