If you are NOT familiar with ‘Gaudete’, I feel bad for you.
But at least we have rectified that.
Click above for a Wikipedia take on this very old Christmas hymn.
I would have to say that ‘Steeleye Span’ is still my all time favorite group — ever.
I used to be a ‘Steeleye Span’ (& ‘Lindisfarne’) groupie —
in that I would try and attend as many concerts, a year, that I could.
When I could I would follow them from town to town
— seeing two or three concerts a week.
That I was a customer support manager, expected to travel around the U.K., as much as I could,
and money was never an issue (in those halcyon days),
made being a ‘groupie’ a breeze.
I think Maddy Prior is divine.
Sit back. Turn up the volume and ENJOY.
