Advent #17 - 'Gaudete'

Here's a real Christmas classic, 'Gaudete' by Steeleye Span from 1973 (yes, another one of those great Christmas songs from 1973). I remember them walking onto the Top Of The Pops stage holding candles as the sound got louder and then walking off again as the sound vanished. It's dominated by Maddy Prior's voice.

A new version of 'Gaudete' has been issued this year by Erasure so watch out for it.
