By Request, ‘Zion’s Daughter’

And we have this carol contest entry from Ina in Scotland–Zion’s Daughter, sung by Boney M. If the tune seems familiar, well, it should–it’s “Hail the Conquering Hero” by Handel. But I don’t think the composer of The Messiah would mind one of his melodies being adapted for a Christmas celebration.

  1. Really nice – has a kind of Abba sound to it. I often wonder what it was like for Mary, Joseph, and Jesus’ brothers and sisters to be a family with Him – he never sinned! I imagine the brothers being jealous of how popular Jesus was with other people.
