‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’

An old, old Christmas carol, first published in the 16th century, performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.

Ladies and gents, it’s December 1 and time and start getting in the mood for Christmas. But of course we have something way more important to do than that: to proclaim the Lordship of Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and to testify to all the world that yes, yes, yes–He came in the flesh, and He will come again.

So come on, let’s whoop it up! Let’s have your requests for Christmas music. Come on now, let’s get busy!

Well, I’m having technical prombles all of a sudden, so I didn’t get the hymn I thought I’d posted. But the one I did get is so gorgeous, I don’t have the heart to replace it. So let’s see if I can give you “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” with this link: cross my fingers, and here goes.


Will this work? If not, I give up for now.

  1. Well, drat. This computer is doing a bad, and will not allow any sound to come through. I know the song pretty well, but it would have been nice to hear it again. I’ll save it and see if anything can be done with this machine.

    1. Youtube is just not playing ball with me today. That augurs badly for my custom of posting a pet video later. Meanwhile, I’ve added a Bing link that’ll get readers to the song I originally intended to post. And I’m leaving the other one where it is because it’s beautiful.
