Formatted Contents Note: The little match girl -- The night before Christmas -- Ring out Wild Bells -- Christmas day in the Workhouse. But there are also discoveries: a sermon by Lancelot Andrewes, an account of Christmas under the Puritans, a first, poverty- stricken Christmas in turn of the century New York and a Mummer's Play. Adding the final touch is the music : from traditional Christmas carols and Corelli to Benjamin Britten. On this recording, Christmas past brings alive Christmas present.
