Christmas Eve greetings
"It is an hour or so before dusk, on Christmas Eve, and the landscape has turned completely monochrome. Far away to the north-east, at King's College Chapel in Cambridge, a lone chorister is singing the opening notes of 'Once in Royal David's City', a moment for me that always marks the true beginning of Christmas."
