TORBAY WASSAIL
(Stephen Lyons arr. Rosa Rebecka)

I'll sing you a wassail of ale and good cheer
As fine a wassail as ever you'll hear
I'll sing you a wassail of silver and gold
As good as a story has ever been told

Chorus:
Wassail, wassail, wassail the tree
that brings us the apples that cider will be
Wassail, wassail, wassail the night
that brings us together in darkness and light

I'll sing you a wassail of singers and trees
A wassail to warm and a wassail to please
I'll sing you a wassail of robins and wrens
As pretty a wassail you'll not hear again

Chorus:
(that binds us together in darkness and light)

I'll sing you a wassail of blossom and snow
As strong a wassail as any could know
I'll sing you a wassail of apples and sun
All hail to the trees now our wassail's begun

Chorus:
(that keeps us together in darkness and light)

 

The sound files attached below are from our first go at this new song at the rehearsal on 16/12/2015 and so are a 'work in progress'

There is a file with all parts together and one for each of the parts to help learning (especially for those who missed the rehearsal)
