Christmas Carols,
What are They?

Pretty well everyone loves Christmas carols, and carol concerts and carol services are usually well attended.

This talk not only charts the development of carols and Christmas hymns but also looks at some of the commercial spin-offs that followed the Christmas spirit (?) and looks at some decidedly un-commercial compositions. We also look at the "sinful"???!!! aspects of carol singing and how the early church spectacularly shot itself in the foot.

Also, find out what Lucy Worsley didn't tell you.

This talk lasts about 60 minutes, or longer or shorter if required.  All necessary equipment (projector, screen, sound system) is provided.
