This British folk group I tried not to like in the 1970s, but I failed. They were pretty good actually and they are just SO SO British. The group was formed back in 1969 by Ashley
Hutchings who had just
left Fairport Convention and through his folk contacts managed to pull many
members into the group throughout its history. The group was named after a
character from a song called Horkstow Grange. Nope I have never heard of it
So are you struggling to remember any of their hit songs? Well the first hit single in the 1970s was in 1972 called Gaudette which actually was a Christmas carol from the 16
and is found in Piae Cantonis in 1592.
Maybe one of the oldest songs to hit our charts?
Ex Maria virgine,
The song was sung in Latin and was still a hit. When did you lastThe group released many singles and had a cult fan base, but chart
hear a Latin hit in the charts? The song had no
instruments and was voices only. Despite all this it was a top twenty hit in
