By Request, ‘Joy to the World’

Isaac Watts composed the words for this in 1719, and Georg F. Handel the music in 1836–so Joy to the World has been proclaiming the joy of Christmas for a good long time, and will continue for a good long time to come.

Requested by Laura–and I wish I could’ve discovered the name of the choir performing this, so I could give them credit.
