On the back of 42 songs over the five volumes of Songs for Christmas (2006), Indie Folk singer Sufjan Stevens released last month Silver and Gold: Songs for Christmas – Vol. 6-10, adding 58 more songs to the collection. Like the previous opus, Silver and Gold is a miscellany of old carols, hymns and new songs.
The Coventry Carol is a stand out 16th century English song which has been recorded by many, including the Mediæval Bæbes and the Voice Squad. This version is true to the musician’s trademark eclectic style and it also comes with psychedelic seasonal visuals on YouTube!
