Down in Yon Forest

Here is a new 2014 recording of the old Appalachian carol ‘Down in Yon Forest’; this is my Christmas song for 2014 and comes to you with my love and best wishes and prayers for a wonderful Christmas for you and yours. If you have not already received it in your email inbox, please feel free to visit the Reverberation site below and take advantage of the free download.

This song is a descendant of the old English ‘Corpus Christi Carol’ or ‘Falcon Carol’ (the original dates back to at least 1506, when it was discovered by a clerk named Richard Hall). This particular version of it was collected in North Carolina in the early 1900s by the folk song collector John Jacob Niles.

Hope you enjoy it, and have a wonderful Christmas.

  1. Thank you. I have a version of this on a compilation disc sung by Coope, Boyes and Simpson. It is much faster. I like your version better I think 🙂

    Hope you have a good Christmas too.
