By Request, ‘Silent Night’ (Enya)

We’ve still got some Christmas music for you. Here’s one requested by Joshua: Silent Night, sung by Enya in Irish Gaelic.

By Request, ‘Silent Night’

A reader in Japan asks for this German hymn, which I find sung quite beautifully in Irish… Well, that’s what Christmas is about, isn’t it? God’s Temple is to be the house of prayer for all nations. And someday it surely will be.

Requested by Joshua, sung by Enya.

By Request, ‘O Come, O Come, Emmanuel’

Joshua requested this one, O Come, O Come Emmanuel, performed by Enya. This hymn, originally an ancient Basque hymn, goes all the way back to the 8th century. It was the high point of my 7th-grade class’s Christmas concert. But we’re not allowed to have those anymore.

Bonus! ‘Silent Night’ in Irish

Another contribution from “jessicafischerqueen”–Silent Night sung in Irish, by Enya. Isn’t it nice to be able to celebrate Christmas without the government frowning at you? And so many of these pictures look like the jigsaw puzzles Patty and I give each other for Christmas.
