Minstrels was inspired by St. Basil's Hymn, a traditional Greek children's New Year's carol based upon a rendition by Malcolm Dalgish, from his album Thunderhead, on Flying Fish Records.

Track B1 composed circa 1699, the Kanon was originally an organ piece.

Track B2 an Eighteenth Century English carol based upon an earlier French carol.

Track B3 composed in 1951 by Jazz trumpeter Alfred S. Burt [1921 - 1954]. Some Children See Him was one of fifteen carols written as gifts for friends. The piece was originally a song with lyrics by Wilha Hutson expressing the unconditional love present within children.

This recording was made direct to two-track using a Studer A 80 VU MK III half-inch recorder at thirty inches per second. No noise reduction was employed. KEF speakers were used for audio monitoring and referencing on this recording.
