Meditation final days of Advent

The carol services are in full swing but hopefully the cribs can wait to be erected after a few more days. I can recommend the CD "Bethlehem Down" with the Finchley Music Group if you want the quieter and more meditative side of music for this holy time. There is much English church tradition and Anglican patrimony in it. One of my favourites is this by the Anglican composer and friend of Vaughan-Williams Gustav Holst who died at the tragically early age of 59 partly from injury sustained by falling backwards off the conductor's podium.
