Our version of White Winter Hymnal is going to sound amaaaaazing in All Saints Church at our Festive Gig – you can almost smell the mince pies and mulled wine when we sing it!
Everyone seems to have a different idea of what the lyrics are about but this is what Mr Fleet Fox (Robin Pecknold) has to say about the song:
“It’s lyrically fairly meaningless. As an introduction to the record, (this was intended to be the opening track on the album), we thought it would be nice to start it with a simple jam that’s focussed on singing – on the record it starts with a tongue-in-cheek harmony thing that we hoped would make people laugh or something but I think it just confuses them. This is my favorite song to play live, though singing it live is sometimes difficult because the lyrics are so vague. Weird how that works!”
And for those of you who might be struggling a little with the clapping bit here’s a helpful tutorial on how it’s done!
