Edited by W P Edwards
Universe ISBN 0-7893-1201-8

King’s College, Cambridge’s, Nine Lessons and Carols are universally familiar so it no wonder to find this new book - with its accompanying CD - aimed at the coffee-table market. However, there is much to enjoy here in addition to the lavish illustrations and full text of the service. A large collection of carols is included with detailed notes on their background and history. Many people listen as a matter of tradition and this book will enable them to feel even closer to events. The price is given in dollars which implies a USA market but the book should be easily available in the UK.
