One cannot step into an elevator, fast-food restaurant, or airport between Thanksgiving and New Year's without hearing most of the tunes recorded here.   This traditional music, with roots going back many centuries, revives our spirits and evokes a festive mood.   They have been part of our cultural subconscious for centuries.   They have not been lost and then unearthed in recent times, like so much early music.   They have been with us all along.
