his beautiful 76 page A4 size book is a must for any music or dance enthusiast. The word ‘carol’ once implied dance as much as song and to bring the two dimensions back together John Garden has spent 2 years devising, testing and refining 64 social dances in dozens of different formations to fit well-loved Christmas carols from the last 7 centuries. The dances all work exceedingly well, are lots of fun, and, in their style and figures, echo the various carols’ historical origins and lyrical storyline. The meticulously well-layed out book contains easy-to-follow instructions to all the dance, full carol lyrics, chorded musical notation, historical notes and wonderful illustrations.
