Advent, door nineteen

Of course, some parishes supported choirs of boys, especially a little later than the time Hardy was writing of in yesterday's post. So today, in door 19, is a reading from Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee, that wonderful, poetic memoir of a more recent - yet still vanished and distant - village past. Here, the boys of the choir take their annual tithe for 'praising the Lord out-of-key' and go out carol singing.
