Since 1919, Once in Royal David's City has been used to commence the worldwide BBC broadcast of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on Christmas Eve from the University of Cambridge in England. Contrasting the pomp of a royal procession with gentler passages, this arrangement is mindful of the quiet eve evoked by the lyrics. Highlights include opening chimes and bells, a marching marcato section, and an ending flourish in the final measures.
