Make sure you tune in to the BBC television broadcast of Carols from
King's College, Cambridge, on Christmas Eve. If you look very closely you
might well see Richard Dawkins, arch-atheist, singing away with 'Hark the
herald angels sing / Glory to the new born King' in the fellows' stall. It
brought a whole new dimension to my enjoyment of the service; it was akin
to spotting the Pope at a Black Sabbath concert. No doubt he was thinking,
as he does of Bach's Mass in B Minor, how much better the music would have
been had it been written about natural selection.
