Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gallery hymns of the 18th and early 19th centuries. The Carnival Band made their debut in the summer of 1984. Their repertoire ranges from medieval dances to music hall songs in a style that draws on early music and folk from Europe East and West, and America North and South. Maddy Prior enjoys many and various musical activities. Working with the Carnival Band holds a special affection for her. She says that the joyful and enthusiastic way the projects are approached make them a delight to do. Elsewhere she has been singing with Steeleye Span for around twenty years and continues to do so with undiminished enjoyment. She also works regularly with her husband Rick Kemp, writing and performing their own compositions. She had done projects Read more with June Tabour and numerous television and radio appearances. Maddy Prior and The Carnival Band were first brought together in 1984 for a BBC Radio 2 broadcast of Christmas carols. This became the basis of 'A Tapestry of Carols' (CDSDL366) which was enthusiastically received by the press and the public. Another commission from Radio 2 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of John Wesley's spiritual awakening and the 200th of his brother Charles' death led to this, their second recording. While Maddy Prior and The Carnival Band are happy to maintain their separate identities and careers, they enjoy these occasional collaborations which give them the opportunity to combine their different styles and talents.
