Gee, only six days to Christmas! If you haven’t entered the carol contest yet–well, now’s a good time to jump in!
G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with a progress report on our second annual Christmas Carol Contest.
A new leading carol has emerged, racking up 44 views the other day–44, by gum! But as a wise Tasmanian devil once said, “Where there’s 44, there must be more.” For the time being, those 44 views have set a record. But records are made to be broken!
The winner will get an autographed copy of Lee’s new Bell Mountain book, His Mercy Endureth Forever. It hasn’t been published yet, but everything’s ready and it should be coming out soon.
Keep those Christmas hymn requests coming!
Requested by Erlene, Wise Men Follow Him, by Carroll Roberson. We seem to be on the subject of the Wise Men today. Well, why not? But Matthew does say they found the baby Jesus and His family in “the house”–they weren’t in the manger anymore, by then.
We have a new leader in our Christmas carol contest–40 views! That’ll be tough to beat, but we’re here to let you try.
Requested by TheWhiteRabbit–Go Tell It on the Mountain, sung by Sarah McLachlan.
It’s early days in our second annual Christmas Carol Contest, and so far the leading carol got 24 views on the day it was posted. Remember, you can enter as often as you like.
This old Burgundian carol, Pat-a-Pan, is one of my favorites; and I especially like this unusual performance of it by the Zamar Student Choir at Harrisburg Baptist Church in the Northern Mississippi Choir Festival.
Did I mention that you can enter the Christmas Carol Contest as often as you like? It sort of dried up yesterday. I’ll have to have a word with Byron.
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!
