"Ichneumon: An animal resembling a weasel, and well worthy of being defended by priest and prince in Egypt, as it feeds on serpents, mice, and other vermin, and is especially fond of crocodiles' eggs, which it scratches out of the sand."
"Etymology: Ichneumon \Ich*neu"mon\, noun. [Latin from the Greek, literally, the tracker; so called because it hunts out the eggs of the crocodile, from to track or hunt after, from track, footstep.]. "

Christmas is here...
A lovely recording of The Carol of the Bells. I found this last year, and I recommend the group highly.
A slightly different take, combining Carol of the Bells with God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen. And again, find and listen to everything by these guys that you can.
And then for something very different.
And one last Maddy Prior, this time with the Carnival Band. I haven't watched the video, I just listen.
