Carols, traditions and stories of the English midwinter with Coope Boyes & Simpson, Fi Fraser, Jo Freya and Georgina Boyes With bands of carollers and wassail songs, tales of Mobray Pies and ghosts - and hospitable customs like Mumping and Clementing, the Winter season in the small towns and villages of England was a time of fireside celebration and travellers’ voices at the door. A sell-out in 2004, Fire and Sleet and Candlelight was specially written to reflect midwinter customs, carols and songs from the midlands region of Nottinghamshire up to Yorkshire.
