For the Time Being

For the Time Being is Auden's Christmas Oratorio, as he calls it, and it's wonderful. This Christmas was my first encounter, and I'm certain there's more to come, because I just scratched the surface in a first reading. Also, gotta admit: it reminded me of TSE's Four Quartets and I feel safe mentioning that here, because Alan Jacobs said the same thing (in different words) in his introduction.

Anyone want to read this outloud together?
