Carols & Hymns for Christmas and the Epiphany recorded by Mel, St. Paul's Church Organist

Mel, St. Paul's Church Organist, writes:

I’m taking a break from my weekly ramblings on Anglican hymnody and instead this week offer an extended “playlist” of Christmas and Epiphany hymns. Everything offered since the start of this pandemic remains online and now amounts to 217 items, which is a fair proportion of any one of our hymnbooks. As we start 2021, I’ll leave Julian to select items from the archive as appropriate, providing fresh material as the need arises.

For now I wish you all the best possible Christmas and New Year you can have and leave you with this list of items that might give a resource for some home Christmas singing.
