It was in the Slightly Foxed December newsletter that I first saw mention of this wonderful CD. “Given for Christmas” is a selection of Christmas-themed prose and poetry, read by a stellar cast of British actors and recorded at St Paul’s and Westminster Cathedrals. Dame Judi Dench, Jim Broadbent, Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Kate Winslet, Penelope Wilton, Sam West, and Eileen Atkins are just some of the well-known (and well-loved) actors who lent their voices to these readings.
To my utter dismay, however, the CD is sold out on the Cancer Research UK website. I hope there is another way of getting my hands on it because “I wants it, my precious!”
