This Monday, we will be listening to music and readings from The Christmas Revels, now an annual event around the time of winter solstice in a few major cities although it began in Boston in the early 1980's. The theme for The Revels this particular year in Washington, D.C. is 'Wassail! Wassail! Early American Christmas Music' so there is a lot of shape-note music.
Also attached is the last set of poems for Christmastide, the Twelve Days of Christmas, up to Epiphany on January 6. These are ones I have selected. If you have one to share, please bring it on Monday.
