Charley Williams talks about carolling on Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning, sometimes singing through the night, they also went out on New Years Eve. About twenty to a carol party. Didn’t sing in Harmony style. The carols weren’t specific to any church though the local Moravian Church had it’s own carol group. He learnt the carols from his father who learnt them from his father. Brockweir used to be a wild place, which is why the Moravians built a Church there.
