‘On This Day Earth Shall Ring’

This carol was first performed sometime around 1360, and it’s still with us today. In fact, we sang this in seventh grade as part of our school’s Christmas concert. This was before we learned that a single atheist killjoy can veto a whole community’s Christmas celebration. But we do show signs of waking from that troubled slumber: I pray it may be so.

Now I have to run off to the nursing home, and I hope to have received some hymn requests from among my vast host of readers by the time I get back.
