Three Kings' Song
The Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould (1834-1924) was one of England's great Victorian eccentrics. At one point he kept a pet bat in one of his socks, and later he married an illiterate mill girl named Grace. He sent her to finishing school for a couple of years and she came back an educated and sophisticated young woman. She was fabulously attractive and Baring-Gould had fifteen children by her -- so many, indeed, that he could never keep track of which one of them was which. The carol is set to a traditional melody from Lille in France.
