Sounds of Christmas. And Winter.
Since we first heard Dylan Thomas read his “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” I’ve made a point (even if I can’t get anybody else to sit still for 20 minutes) to listen every year this time to this lyrical account of one small boy’s remembrance as much of winter as of Christmas.
The use of language is luscious, but you have to keep a close ear to hear around the Welsh turning of the words.
If you’ve never enjoyedÂ this before, in my opinion (not shared by all in my family) it is worth a third of an hour of your time.
