Now that you are getting into Christmas programming, I hope you have not overlooked an important and extremely popular work, the Vaughan-Williams "Hodie."
There should be a few readings of it between now and Christmas, even if late-night, and during the day you can make use of some very attractive excerpts, like the "Alleluia."
Your Vaughan-Williams fans are holding their breaths.
