A Christmassy ‘Ask RiotACT!’
I love this time of year, though by this time a lot of us are fed up with Christmas music – usually because we only hear the same few songs over and over again while we shop.
Retail staff must go bonkers!
It’s such a pity we don’t hear a much wider range of the fabulous Christmassy music that is available. For example, I wonder why we don’t hear treasures like the Sussex Carol more often.
(This film, Beatrix Potter’s ‘The Tailor of Gloucester’, has a wonderful Christmassy beginning including carol singers giving a rendition of Sussex Carol. I highly recommend the whole film.)
I had never heard the Sussex Carol until I came across this film when my children were small. It has remained my favourite Christmas Carol ever since, even though it is rarely heard for reasons unknown.
What’s your favourite, and why?
