For generations villagers have walked from house to house, entered darkened kitchens after midnight, and have sung the carol as occupants listened in the darkness.
Producer Chris Brookes tracked down the village carolers and follows them on their rounds as they sing their medieval melodies.
Chris Brookes is an independent radio producer who lives and works in Newfoundland.
