The following program was first presented in 1880. It has been broadcast for many years by the BBC on Christmas Eve from Kings College in Cambridge. Nine Bible readings are given, separated by musical interludes. The music changes from year to year, though the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s The Messiah is usually included.
Readers who would like to produce the program for family and friends can add music of their choice.
