By Request, ‘Angels We Have Heard on High’

Here’s one that’ll soothe your soul–Angels We Have Heard on High, an instrumental by Rick Foster. Requested by Joshua, and entered into the carol contest: you might want to play this just before bedtime.

  1. I would like to introduce your readers to a Finnish/Swedish Christmas hymn with music by Jean Sibelius, Giv mig ej glans/Give me no splendor, here sung by opera singer Peter Mattei: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NY5ybC4F2I

    Here is the first verse in English:

    Give me no gold, no rich reward
    at blessed Christmastide;
    give me God’s glory, angel-guard,
    let peace on earth abide!
    Give me a feast
    that gladdens best
    the Master, my invited guest!
    Give me no gold, no rich reward,
    give me an angel-guard!

    Best regards
