By Request, ‘Adeste Fideles’ (Pavarotti)

Phoebe asked for Adeste Fideles, so I have given her Pavarotti at Notre Dame Cathedral in Montreal.

Our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest is off to a good start–I hope many of you enter. If you’ve never made a hymn request before, now’s as good a time as any to start.

  1. When I was a little girl, I went to a Catholic elementary school. I’m not sure if I was in first or second grade but our class was taught to sing this beautiful Christmas hymn in Latin. Adeste Fideles was the first “religious” Christmas song that I remember singing.

  2. Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. What a voice. He could blast out notes that shook the rafters and still give the impression that he had more force in reserve. And yet he could also do a pianissimo that shimmered with the delicacy of a cobweb.
