about

This traditional English carol is one of several 'doubting' carols in which Joseph finds it 'strange his wife should be untouched and yet with child.' Gabriel comes to Joseph in a dream to reassure him. 'Fear not, just Joseph, this thy wife is still a spotless maid and no consent of sin against her can be laid'. Our instrumental version features the jangling bray harp and growling three string bass. Dove's Vagary is another tune from the Playford collection
