Before we get to the reason I started this post, I thought you might like to see a few photos of when I went to Christmas Carols at St Paul’s Cathedral.
We had to queue for over 2 hours to get in but it was all more than worthwhile.
As you can see, St Paul’s is a beautiful building especially at Christmas when over 3,500 visit each of the many Christmas services, It is said that St Paul’s has one of the three top choirs along with Westminster Abbey and Kings College in Cambridge.
I’ve been listening to a lot of hymns this year and I have a new firm favourite. If anyone has a few minutes to spare they might like to watch/listen to it too.
Though not a new hymn by any means, Oh Holy Night was written in France in 1847, it has recently won hymn of the year in Britain several years in a row including 2018.
Here is a wonderful rendition from the BBC Carols from King’s (college, Cambridge).
