Blog Carolling with fM

It's wonderful to see Footnote Maven who has had a tough year with a number of huge health challenges continue her tradition of Blog Carolling.

I am a little late with my submission, An Australian Christmas Carol. The recording I have chosen is from a primary school in Victoria, Australia, Eltham East Primary School. I love this carol because it captures the Australian environment at Christmas time.




The carol is by John Wheeler with words by William G James


The north wind is tossing the leaves.
The red dust is over the town;
The sparrows are under the eaves,
And the grass in the paddock is brown;
As we lift up our voices and sing,
To the Christ-child the heavenly King.
The tree ferns in green gullies sway;
The cool stream flows silently by;
The joy bells are greeting the day,
And the chimes are adrift in the sky,
As we lift up our voices and sing,
To the Christ-child the heavenly King.
