Intoxication for the Ear: Christmas Music from the Past

By theatticoneighth

“What the lyrics to these carols contain is a kaleidoscope of images — a hare, a tree of life, christ winning humanity in battle, an eagle bearing a lover away, a spotless rose. Listening to them, the winter glows with light and fantasy until the light comes back." Curated by Madeline Baker.
