Not the Nine Lessons... Day Two!

Having dispensed with the traditional festive opening with such cavalier disregard yesterday, I've been feeling a twinge of guilt. But then, this is 'Not' the Nine Lessons, rather than the Nine Lessons themselves.

Nevertheless, for our second carol let's have Once in Royal, not sung by some posh pre-pubescent at one of our elite musical institutions but by Jethro Tull (aka Ian Anderson) from Blackpool.

And let's stay in the regions for today's lesson, the evergreen and evocative Child's Christmas in Wales, by Dylan Thomas.

The real Nine Lessons and Carols (that is, from King's College, Cambridge) has been broadcast by the BBC since 1928 and - thanks to the World Service - is heard by millions all over the globe.

I wonder what reach my little alternative is likely to achieve?

Click back again tomorrow to see what Day Three has to offer.
