Christmas Music spot for the Feast of Stephen

The 26th of December is usually known as Boxing Day in Britain from an old tradition of presenting employees with a Christmas Box on that day. In Western Europe it is celebrated as the Saint's day of St Stephen (although the Eastern Orthodox churches celebrate this day on 27th December). As I am writing in Western Europe - although Britain is leaving the EU we are not leaving Europe - that makes today the Feast of Stephen, so there is only one choice for a Christmas music spot!

This version of the famous carol is sung by Benjamin Luxom, the young Aled Jones, and the choir of Westminster Cathedral.
