‘Caro Gesu Bambino’

Here’s a carol that I’ve never heard before–Caro Gesu Bambino, sung by Andrea Bocelli.

The Christmas Carol Contest is over, but we do take hymn requests every day, all year long… and it would be nice to have a few today.

By Request, ‘Angels We Have Heard on High’

Pat Spradley, as they used to say on television, “You asked for it!”–Angels We Have Heard on High, sung by Andrea Bocelli. He sings most of it in Italian; but for that voice, it seems a small price to pay.

By Request, ‘The Greatest Gift’

“This is a little Christmassy,” Susan said, in requesting this hymn–but since when have we ever let that stop us?

Andrea, Matteo, and Virginia Bocelli sing The Greatest Gift, three generations of Bocellis in one song.

By Request, ‘Amazing Grace’

We have to thank Susan for requesting this one–just beautiful!

Amazing Grace, sung by Andrea Bocelli and Allison Krauss–yes, here is a hymn to feed the soul and heal the heart. God knows my heart needs it.

By Request, ‘Angels We Have Heard on High’

Requested by Susan–and wow! I can’t follow the lyrics in Italian, but that voice! That music! A gift of God that stirs the soul.

Angels We Have Heard on High, sung by Andrea Bocelli… and now I really do have to get back to work on my book. As soon as I dry my eyes.

By Request, ‘The Prayer’

Elder Mike sent us a link to this hymn, but I couldn’t get it to work. Not to worry–I found several versions of it on YouTube. This is a duet by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli: The Prayer.

‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’ (Andrea Bocelli)

I didn’t realize this was going to turn out to be (only in Latin) Angels We Have Heard on High; but once he started singing, I didn’t want Andrea Bocelli to stop. Gloria in Excelsis Deo, “Glory to God in the Highest”–none the worse for being heard in June.

Meanwhile, we’re ready to post your favorite hymns. All you have to do is ask.

By Request, ‘Hallelujah’

Erlene asked for this one–Andrea Bocelli with hisdaughter, Virginia, singing Hallelujah.

We’re still taking Christmas carol requests, if anybody has any.

Andrea Bocelli, ‘Adeste Fideles’

What would happen if I just ran a whole bunch of hymns and carols today? Would the readership get bored and go away?

I don’t know. Let’s see what happens.

This is from my chess buddy, “jessicafischerqueen”–Andrea Bocelli singing Adeste Fideles–and I do mean singing.

‘Ave Maria’ (Bocelli)

Ave Maria, sung by Andrea Bocelli–remember, everybody: this has become a time in history when we all have to sing louder. And forget the denominations: it’s Christ’s people vs. the antichrists. God has richly endowed us with enemies, we don’t have to fight each other.

And it would’ve been a shame not to put this on the Your Favorite Hymns list.
