‘On This Day Earth Shall Ring’

This is one of our older Christmas carols, On This Day Earth Shall Ring: lyrics published in 1582, and the melody has been traced by into the 1300s in Finland. Performed here by St. Malachy’s College Choir, Belfast.

Turn up the volume and open the window–this poor world needs Christmas!

    1. I’m surprised by how many people say they don’t know this hymn. It was on the menu for our seventh grade choir’s Christmas program… back when a school was allowed to have a Christmas program.

    2. You shouldn’t say “seventh grade”, Lee. That makes the kids in sixth grade feel inadequate and the kids in eighth grade feel too old. 🙂
