This year's carols will include old favourites like 'Ding! dong! merrily on high', 'Away in a manger' and 'While shepherds watched their flocks by night', as well as less well-know traditional carols.

The 2013 commissioned carol is a setting of William Blake's 'Hear the voice of the Bard' (1794) by Thea Musgrave (see the earlier news story).

For more information about the service, and who will be broadcasting it, see the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols page.
