Out Under The Sky (1999)
Check out the Real Audio Sound Sample

  1. The Holly and the Ivy
    The Holly & the Ivy was collected by Cecil Sharp and can be traced to 1710 though it is probably of pagan origin.
  2. The Angel Gabriel
    The melody of The Angel Gabriel is said to have originated in Devonshire. It must be from the same source as the melody of the popular John Barleycorn.
  3. Lo, How a Rose e 'er Bloomin'
    Lo, how a Rose e’er Bloomin’ is a German carol that appeared in the 15th century. The English words are attributed to Theodore Baker, c. 1900. I arranged this carol at the age of 21, sitting around the picking table in the front room at McCabe's Guitar Shop, Santa Monica, CA.
  4. King Herod and the Cock
    King Herod and the Cock was also collected by Cecil Sharp, is a variation on a ballad about St. Stephen and can be traced to an 11th century Danish ballad.
  5. Coventry Carol
    Coventry Carol was sung by the shearmen and tailors during their pageant on the cathedral steps in Coventry, England between 1534 and 1584.
  6. My Dancing Day
    The text, at least, of My Dancing Day is thought to be earlier than the 17th century and is probably based on a secular song.
  7. Patapan
    Patapan is a Burgundian carol written by Bernard de la Monnoye (1641 - 1728).
  8. Angels We Have Heard On High
    Angels We Have Heard On High is a combination of a medieval Latin chorale and a popular 18th century carol, first published together in 1855.
  9. I Wonder As I Wander
    I Wonder As I Wander was collected by John Jacob Niles from the singing of Annie Morgan in Murphy, NC and published in his Songs of the Hill Folk, 1912.
  10. Mid-Winter
    Mid-Winter is a poem by Christina Rossetti set to music by Gustav Holst in 1906.
  11. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
    Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas was written by Hugh Martin & Ralph Blane in 1944 for the film "Meet Me In St. Louis." It was sung by Judy Garland to Margaret O'Brien before one of the most memorable scenes ever captured on film.
  12. Winter
    Winter was written by Lisa Aschmann and Mark Simos in 1993. I've included this last song not only for its beauty but to acknowledge our modern, more secular era and to end the album as it began with the subject of nature.

Through the cycle of seasons and civilizations, nature prevails.
I learned many of these carols as a child from an early Robert Shaw Chorale LP. This album is dedicated to the memory of Robert Shaw and to Annie Morgan who sang "I Wonder As I Wander" for John Jacob Niles.
Produced by Suzanne McDermott and Dan Harlow
Suzanne McDermott recorded this album live to two-track during the middle of a few very hot nights in late July, 1999 at Anchor East, Watertown, MA
