John Leeming's contribution this month, although not festive, does fit the time of year very well. With darkness setting in well before 5pm and the heating on to make a cosy home, the Moonlight Lullaby is just the right type of thing to accompany the cracking of an open fire or perhaps the glass of cherry before bed - whatever your situation, the scintillating tones of the Clayhall Compton in the hands of Stanley Wyllie is bound to complete your evening!
