In case no big stories over next few days, I want to wish all readers of AHN a very Merry Christmas. I do hope you and your families are keeping safe and well during these strange times, wherever you may be.

To celebrate this yuletide season, my brother, sister-in-law and myself (on lute) decided to present this rather lovely medieval Christmas song entitled 'There is no rose'. This fifteenth century setting is found in a manuscript in Trinity College Cambridge. Do pat yourself on the back if you can identify all the paintings within!

Update - and a very happy Christmas to you all from me, Bendor; rather absent these last few months, but Adam has been doing a fantastic job keeping us all informed of what's been going on in our world. I am most grateful to him! What an extraordinary year it has been - here's hoping 2021 is a little calmer.
