Carols are an essential part of Christmas, bringing families and communities together in song. But carols also connect us in other, deeper ways: from the Dickensian 'God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen' to the Coventry Carol of the Medieval mystery plays, from the bawdy 'Here we come a-wassailing' to the gentle 'In the Deep Midwinter' our Christmas carols shine a joyful light on our shared culture and history. Now, for the first time, acclaimed academic, musician and radio presenter Jeremy Summerly unwraps their hidden treasures. He shows how our festive repertoire has its roots in pagans dancing round stone circles at the winter Solstice, early Christians chanting in Christmas procession, and St Francis of Assisi rhythmically shaking wooden nativity figures. We could all be dancing like crazed jivers as well as listening to King's College Choir in silent awe. We wish you a merry Christmas!
