TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - A stunning interpretation of the classic Christmas song. It was illegal to be a Catholic in England from 1558 to 1829, so this was written as a catechism song to help young Catholics learn the basics of their faith. The song had hidden meanings; "true love" refers to God and "me" refers to the church. The twelve gifts also had their meanings. The twelve drummers stood for the twelve points of doctrine in the Apostles' Creed, eleven pipers for the eleven faithful apostles, ten lords for the ten commandments etc. Finally a partridge in a pear tree represented Jesus Christ as a mother partridge that acts as a decoy to save her helpless chicks from predators.
