The most famous American Christmas carol family is undisputably the Burt family. The carols of Bates and Alfred Burt and the Christmas carol cards they sent are now part of our hymnody and folklore. Abbie Betinis is the grand daughter of Bates and grand niece of Albert and is continuing the tradition with freshness and craftsmanship. A noted and often commissioned composer in her own right, she brings her skill and talent to this unique genre in a way no one else could. The verse and chorus form reminds us of an English carol, but the text, taken most often from other Burt family members, are very American. Enjoy this energetic carol with a sacred text by John Harris Burt. Church or concert.
