Our recordings


When the winter comes, we gather, to dance and sing together. When the winter comes, we gather, to dance our cares away.

[clap] Everybody clap hands. [clap] [clap] Everybody sing now. [clap] Sing a song of gladness. [clap] [clap] Sing a song of joy.

Winter [clap], cold winter, blows hard against the windowpane; dance round [clap] the fire, ’til springtime comes again.
