Dr.Ralph Dunstan in The Cornish Carol Songbook (published in 1929)says "This Carol was formerly very popular in the Parishes of St. Agnes, Mithian, and Perranzabuloe — and is still sung there." Miners from St Agnes took this carol with them when they went to America and it is performed each Christmas at Grass Valley, California as well as in other old mining towns. You are listening to a recording of the Troon carol choir.
