On her new Christmas album, Kate Rusby sings the folk carol, "Bradfield." The words of the last verse should be:
Glory to God and peace to men
is the news our dear bells bring;
nations will worship on earth below
with this carol that Angels sing.
Our Kate has changed it to the following:
Peace to the world and peace to man
is the song the dear bells ring;
nations will follow on earth below
with this song the angels sing.
Small changes but enough to render the carol Godless (angels are okay because they are new agey). You would think that folk musicians, if no one else, would put tradition and authenticity before trendy, politically correct, atheism, but, no, the present generation of folk musicians completely eschew the Christian heritage that so richly runs through the veins of folk music.
Ms Rusby, I'm disappointed in you.
