Album: Sacred Calendars

Track: Sacred Calendar: Lady Day with Frances Knight


Description: 25 March is an important Christian feast known as 'the annunciation' [of the angel to Mary that she was to give birth to Jesus]. This became known in England as 'Lady Day' and was, for many centuries, the first day of the new year -- and this notion survives today in the Tax Year beginning on 6 April each year!
