I was shocked to hear 'Pie Jesu' sung by Lucy Kay on Christmas Carols on itv(24-Ded-2014), and even more when the presenter said this is one of her favourite Christmas time song !!!.
What were they thinking ?.

How really weird! Perhaps "Jesu" in the title and a complete lack of understanding of the text triggered "Crhistmas" ... who knows!

The answer is in the television channel: ITV
They are incapable of intelligent programming of classical music (hence the inclusion of an "artiste" who so capably disproves the proposition that "Britain's got talent").
I don't find the mis-categorisation of the seasonal use nearly so disquieting as the description of Andrew Lloyd-Webber's piece (if it was indeed his item) as "music".
