The British folk group comprising the husband-and-wife duo Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson, members of their family, and the fine vocal group the Devil's Interval, performs a selection of traditional and modern folk material encompassing May Day songs and Christmas and Passiontide carols. It's not all cozy good cheer, though--some of the older carols, like "Awake Awake" and "On Christmas Day It Happened," pack a realistic, if disconcerting punch that harks back to the festival's pagan roots.
