Christmastide: Its History, Festivities and Carols, With Their Music is a collection of essays detailing the early traditions of Christmas in England. This recording includes the prose portions of the book only (The Vignettes). The earliest Christmas customs from the monarchy to the landed gentry are explored in great detail. The passage of time and the influence of circumstance all had an impact on the customs and importance of holiday traditions. Anyone interested in how the Christmas customs we recognize today, and many long forgotten, will find this book a fascinating piece of history. ( Greg Giordano)
