Some Christmas carols

Here’s a set of articles about the stories behind some Christmas carols. It’s the little things that make it interesting, like that Armenian Charles Wesley wrote “Hark how all the welkin rings” and his rival, Calvinist George Whitefield, changed it to the present version. Each story also has some music to sing along to. No piano? No worries. You’ve got the internet!

 In this same issue is this article about the invention of Christmas as we know it by Charles Dickens.
