Exmoor Carols – Volume 1

Wren Music is very proud to present this first volume of Exmoor Carols, which represents an
important collaboration for traditional music in the South West.

The vision for this project comes from Bob and Jacqueline Patten, who have tirelessly documented
150 carols in and around Exmoor, and we are excited to help them put the collection back into
use through making this first volume of songs (plus arrangements for community singing) and
arranging a workshop day in Porlock (where traditional carol singing continues) on 19th
November 2011.

When Bob and Jacqueline came to see us with this idea we knew we had to involve Tom and
Barbara Brown, who do so much to promote traditional music up in north Devon, and together
we set ourselves the objective of making the Exmoor tradition as well known as the Sheffield
tradition – and this is our first step on that quest!

We must also thank our supporters Exmoor National Park and the Golsoncott Foundation, without
whom the idea could have remained just another vision held in vain.
