St. Agnes Fountain. Banbury 2014

Recorded at St. Mary's Church Banbury, December 2014

Firm festive favourites of the folk world, St Agnes Fountain conducted their 14th consecutive sell-out Christmas tour. Since their first get together, to record the eponymous St Agnes Fountain album in 2001, the quartet of founder, David Hughes; Fairport Convention's Chris Leslie and 2009's BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Duo, Chris While and Julie Matthews, have brought musical invention and laughter to the star-dust atmosphere of the season.

Their magical live performances have endeared them to an ever-growing audience, and we are fortunate enough to have a recording from their concert last December at St. Mary’s Church in Banbury, Oxfordshire.

This recording from their Banbury concert at, St.Mary's church, presents their sparkling musicianship, humour and heartful renditions of favourite Christmas tunes.  

You should also be able to experience some of the wonderful acoustic of the church captured using binaural techniques.  Listen under headphones, is it like being there?

Christmas, as they say, starts with St Agnes Fountain
