Collegium Regale: Carry Me Home

Dashing away with the smoothing iron
Brigg Fair
Botany Bay
Il est ne le divin enfant
Myfanwy
The turtle dove
Londonderry air
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Nobody knows the trouble I seen
De gospel train
My sweetheart's like Venus
Ca' the yowes
Molly Malone
O Waly Waly
Ye banks and braes
Song of the Volga Boatmen
Shenandoah
Joshua
Steal Away
Swing low, sweet chariot

Carry me home is an assortment of folk songs arranged for male voices including "Londonderry Air" and "O Waly Waly". Collegium Regale, which is composed of the choral scholars from the King's College Choir, explores the traditional songs of Britain, America, France and Hungary. Many of these familiar tunes, such as "Molly Malone" and "Shenandoah" were arranged by Keith Roberts who serves as the group's artistic consultant. The spirituals arranged by Robert Rice stray from the traditional style. His versions lean toward the lighter sounds of doo-wop and barbershop, particularly in "Sometimes I feel like a motherless child." Though, all pieces and especially the solos are sung beautifully.
