‘Gaudete’ Means ‘Rejoice!’

“Thewhiterabbit” has been asking for more Christmas music, and as I was reading his message, Patty discovered this medieval carol on youtube–Gaudete, performed by the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, complete with medieval drum.

This is one mighty rousing Christmas carol. Turn up the volume and see if you can stay in your chair.

    I, too, love these early carols and devotional songs. And there are so many liturgical seasons and feasts throughout the year that you can probably find lots more of this kind of music even after the Christmas season is over. (Hint, hint.) 🙂
