An Advent Encore

One of my favorite Christmastime songs is  “People Look East”, an Advent carol with lyrics by Eleanor Farjeon (who also wrote “Morning Has Broken.”) The tune is the French melody “Besançon,” but perhaps because of the lyrics, I’ve always thought it had a certain Englishness to it. And since it’s Advent once again, I thought I’d share the song once more.

May the day and the season treat you well.
