Christmas carols: Past three o'clock
Past three o'clock draws its inspiration from the calls of the London waits — pre-17th century musicians who patrolled the town at night and sang a signature tune on the hour. The refrain which precedes each verse echoes the watchman's signature tune, and is based on what is known of the old hourly calls. The verses are newer, having been composed by George Ratcliffe Woodward in the early 20th century.
