World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 8th December – Christmas Songs #2: ‘Joy Shall Be Yours (Carol of the Field Mice)’ led by Bella Hardy

Band on the Wall’s doors may be shut for a while but you can still take part in our fun music learning programmes from the comfort of your own home.

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music, but if you would like the score it can be downloaded from this dropbox, where we’ll also upload an mp3 of the song to sing-along to after the session!

This live event is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

Email learning@bandonthewall.org to become an official choir member!


This Week’s Song: Carol of the Field Mice
Words by Kenneth Graham, Tune by Keith Hopwood & Malcolm Rowe

Villagers all, this frosty tide
Let your doors swing open wide
Though wind may follow, and snow beside
Yet let us in by your fire to bide
And Joy shall be yours in the morning!
Joy shall be yours in the morning!

Here we stand in the cold and the sleet
Blowing fingers and stamping feet
Come from far away you to greet
You by the fire and we in the street
And Joy shall be yours in the morning!
Joy shall be yours in the morning!

Goodman Joseph toiled through the snow
Saw the star o’er a stable low
Mary she might not further go
Welcome the thatch, and litter below
And Joy shall be yours in the morning!
Joy shall be yours in the morning!

Then they heard the angels tell
‘Who were the first to say nowell?
Animals all, as it befell
There In the stable where they did dwell
And Joy shall be yours in the morning!
Joy shall be yours in the morning!
