Three for the price of one today!
The sometime maligned term Xmas is actually perfectly legit. Did you realise that the x here is actually the Greek chi, the first letter of Christos, the Greek word for Christ?
Y – I’ve managed to get ahead of myself by giving you Britten’s Wolcom Yole yesterday.
and finally, Z. We got there! Zechariah, father of John the Baptist and (reluctant?) visionary. Hope you enjoy this performance of Carlo Gesualdo’s Benedictus, (Song of Zechariah).
Wishing you all a blessed and peaceful Christmas!
