In a book full of unexpected asides and intriguing characters, Andrew Barr tells the stories behind the 20 most popular carols, as chosen in 2005 by Songs of Praise enthusiasts. He writes about the people who wrote each carol and how, where and when it captured the public imagination. But his accounts are full of surprises - Alastair Sim turns up dressed as the headmistress of St Trinian's during Christians Awake - and anecdotes from the making of Songs of Praise. Slightly off-mint.
