Orkney Archive Advent Calendar - An Orcadian Christmas Carol

Another treasure from the Ernest Walker Marwick collection. Listen to the Tenston Carol, a Christmas song in Orcadian dialect HERE

The song, recorded in 1966, is sung by Alison Sabiston with words by her mother L.M. Sabiston and music by A. MacLeod. The piano is played by Mrs MacLeod.

  1. Very sweet! Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. That was sweet! It's well after Christmas, but I enjoyed the song very much.
