Subject: RE: Songs for the Winter Solstice
Hey, Les! You really ought to consider that there is plenty of history about pre-Christian celebrations in European places other than England, and plenty of evidence that they were subsumed into "Christian" practices.

Many thanks to Saro for her lovely Solstice Carol. A brief stroll through ITunes provides several versions of the tune.
