		Ned Oldham - New Year Carol

	"New Year Carol" a new recording of an ancient Welsh lyric set to a new tune.  All the proceeds will be donated to the Cure Alzheimer's Fund.  The song disappears on New Year's Day, January 1, 2015.

	Note from Ned: The recording offered here is not the Benjamin Britten version, though I found the lyric in another poetry anthology edited by Walter de la Mare, Come Hither. 
	It was recorded to be given away as a Christmas offering until the idea of helping to fund Alzheimer's research, if only a drop in the bucket, seemed to be called for by the lyrics themselves.
