Sound of Majesty: Lessons and Carols from King's College in Cambridge

Recorded in 1978, Sound of Majesty will broadcast Lessons and Carols from Cambridge, England on December 24, 2009.

Some local stations have elected to run wall-to-wall Christmas music apart from their regular programming, but if you are reading this you can probably listen via the on-line archive, which is already posted for your convenience.

You can find a direct link to the broadcast here, and a direct link to the program list here.

Adam lay ybounden
Bounden in a bond;
Four thousand winter,
Thought he not too long.

And all was for an apple
An apple that he took.
As clerkes finden,
Written in their book.

Ne had the apple taken been
The apple taken been,
Ne had never our ladie,
Abeen heav'ne queen.

Blessed be the time
That apple taken was,
Therefore we moun singen.
Deo gracias!
