Stories behind those much loved carols

With Christmas around the corner, are you lustily singing your favourite carols? Pause for a moment- ever thought of the stories behind them? Some have been written to be sung in Church, some as a result of profound sorrow and some as mere entertainment for children.
All about Philip’s obsessions

Philip Hoare is a man obsessed. He’s quite open about it – “everything I write is the product of obsession” - and offers each of his books as proof of his claim. “If one is to spend five years of one’s life working on a book, one has to be utterly fascinated with the subject. I want to live my books. I want to be Stephen Tennant, Oscar Wilde, a whale.”
