We all have our favourite Christmas tunes, from Bing Crosby’s deep voice charming us with “White Christmas” to Noddy Holder screaming “It’s Christmas”. But back in the 12th Century, a monk called St Francis of Assisi, did something radical he started introducing songs with lyrics about the birth of Jesus into church services over the festive period.
