By Request, ‘Coventry Carol’

This somber carol commemorates Herod’s massacre of the innocents in Matthew 2:16-18–a reminder that there are evil powers in this world that will stop at nothing in their resistance to God’s plan for humanity’s salvation.

First published in the 16th century, this carol is probably a lot older than that. But its message has not gone out of date.

Performed by the King’s College Choir at Cambridge, requested by Erlene.
