Abstract:

On Christmas Eve, 1920, John Meredith Langstaff was born into a music-filled home where a rousing carol party was the peak of his family's year. Half a century later, his inspired Christmas Revels was born, a theatrical weaving of diverse traditional song, folk dance, and drama that has become a beloved institution across the country. Author Susan Cooper, a long-time writer for the Revels, traces its roots through the rhythms of Jack Langstaff's life -- from his days as a star choirboy to his early career as a noted recital singer; from a daunting World War II injury to his work as recording artist, TV performer, teacher, and children's author.
