    Beautiful! Coventry Carol and the full set of We Three Kings verses— two of my favorites.

    What a treat! Thank you for posting John. The Coventry Carol never fails to raise a tear, our friend Beatrice Groves has posted a fascinating history of it.

    Exquisite! Thanks for sharing and a Blessed Nativity to y’all!!

    Thank you Nick for linking the history of the Coventry Carol. I just discovered it this year in my own research. I enjoy English history and knew this carol was included in Tudor Christmas collections and wondered when it was written and performed. It’s a beautiful carol but now carries with it the sadness of what it represents.
