All Saints in Loughborough, 莱克, used an amended 我们 version of the 17th century English hymn — which refers to Jesus’s birth and shepherds’ joy — to salute the “queer and questioning”.

Another new line reads: “God rest you also, 女性, who by men have been erased. Through history ignored and scorned, defiled and displaced.”

He told Times Radio that the rituals of 圣诞节 helped people to step outside their “own little bubble” and connect with something they have inherited and hoped to pass on, such as the “continuation of musical repertoire”.

For him, 他说, the rituals were “more important than particular sensitivities which come and go”.
