Description
What sweeter music can we bring Than a carol, for to sing...?' – Robert Herrick (1591-1674).

The stories behind over 30 of our favourite carols, including music and lyrics. An illuminating companion to the much-loved Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, broadcast from the splendid acoustic of King’s College, Cambridge. From pagan origins and Tudor treasures, to how the Victorians came to super-charge carolling, and how ‘Carol’s from Kings’s’ became, itself, a tradition, broadcast on the BBC since 1928. Includes carols in all their moods: ‘It Came Upon a Midnight Clear’, ‘Silent Night’, ‘I Saw Three Ships’, ‘On Ilkley Moor Baht 'At’, ‘The Coventry Carol’, ‘Ding Dong Merrily on High’, and more.

Purchased as a gift for a particular recipient. It does not pretend to be comprehensive but we found it suitable for our purpose.

Book is interesting , but I thought that I will find carols to learn more, and sing along.
It is my fault.
