A special present for Northumbria and East Anglia, the stories of three Saxons important in the Christian Story. Caedmon, the cattleherd who became an accomplished singer at Whitby Abbey by a miracle, King (now Saint) Oswald's heroic defence of the Christians in Northumbria and his battle with the pagan king Penda and the story of St Edmund of East Anglia, whose relics lay in the great Abbey of St Edmundsbury as he was martyred by the Vikings who attacked those lands in a cruel way.
I give you the Mediaeval minced pies recipes and also a treat from the Chapel Choir of the King's School, Gloucester Cathedral with a (secular)Victorian Christmas Medley called 'What shall we sing at Christmas?'conducted by the excellent Derek Harries. What a Choir! And my son is in it!
