The Tailor of Gloucester by Beatrix Potter. A famous children's story where mice save the day for the tailor of Gloucester. Many parts for mice and acro-bat-ic bats. And song! Such favorites as:
- Dong-A-Gong music by Gioachino Rossini (or the Tailor's Lament)
- No Chablis-ly music by Carl Heinrich Maria Orff (or Simpkin's Soliloquy)
- Hubbalooya! music by George Frideric Handel (Everybody rise and join in! It's traditional!)
"Good King Wenceslas is a popular Christmas carol that tells a story of a king going on a journey in braving harsh winter weather to give alms to a poor peasant on the Feast of Stephen (December 26, the day after Christmas). During the journey, his page is about to give up the struggle against the cold weather, but is enabled to continue by following the king's footprints, step for step, through the deep snow. The legend is based on the life of the historical Saint Wenceslaus I, Duke of Bohemia or Svatý Václav in Czech (907–935)." ―Wikipedia. Perennial PDQ Bach holiday favorite Good King Kong Looked Out, and the whole congregation joins in to sing selected winter carols.
