Phoebe asked for this one, The Holly and the Ivy, by the Robert Shaw Chorale. This was supposed to have lyrics, but I can’t find any. I think the little girl in the picture must have put them away somewhere, trying to be helpful.
Our Christmas Carol Contest continues!
Phoebe requested Hark the Herald Angels Sing, so here it is–from the Kings College Choir, at Cambridge.
The Christmas Carol Contest continues! So far the leading carol got 24 views the day it was posted. Remember, you can enter as often as you like. It’s part of our celebration of our Savior’s birth.
“The White Rabbit” has won our first annual Christmas Carol Contest with Magnificat by Keith and Kristyn Getty. Posted in Dec. 19, this hymn got 27 views on that day.
Lyn, dear Linda Sorci’s daughter, wins a special prize for The Christmas Shoes (33 views, Nov. 27).
Meanwhile, Mr. Rabbit, you’re in line to receive an autographed copy of The Temptation when it comes out, which should be soon (no reason for it not to be–but what do I know?), so please email me your mailing address. I should still have it somewhere, from the last time you won a contest, but you should see this stack of paper here. Much easier if you just send it again.
If you’d prefer an earlier book in the series, that’s okay, too–just let me know.
Everybody, thanks for requesting so many hymns and making this contest a success.
And we are still taking requests for Christmas hymns, so please feel free!
In an email celebrating this Christmas Day, Phoebe said, “The light has come into the world!” and wondered if it could be the title of a hymn. As it turns out, it is! And here it is–The Light Has Come Into the World, sung by a mini-choir at the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church.
Meanwhile, our Christmas Carol Contest is still on, folks, albeit in its last day. Tomorrow I’ll announce the winner, who will receive an autographed copy of my new book, The Temptation, as soon as it comes off the press. So if you want to enter, today’s your last chance.
But we will continue to post Christmas hymn requests for as long as we keep getting them.
Requested by Phoebe, The First Noel–and I thought Bing Crosby would be just the ticket.
Let’s keep the hymns coming, everybody. Tomorrow’s the last day of the contest! Which does not mean we have to stop posting Christmas music. Hey, I’ve been known to post it in August…
