I usually save this hymn for Christmas-time; but there are no reader requests pending (not yet), and, well, I just felt like hearing it this morning–Gloria in Excelsis Deo, sung by the Libera boys’ choir.
We can always have more hymns if readers ask for them!
Yes, I usually save this hymn for Christmas-time. But I don’t really have to, do I? Quite simply, this is a hymn I want to hear today: sung by the Libera boys’ choir, Gloria in Excelsis Deo. Some of you will be able to work out the Latin even if you’ve never studied it.
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.
This was the first hymn that popped into my head this morning, so that’s why it’s posted–Gloria in Excelsis Deo, sung by the Libera boys’ choir, melody by St. Saens. I usually play this around Christmastime, but maybe we need it today.
Some of you have your churches shut down by the quarantine, so an extra hymn on a Sunday afternoon won’t come amiss–Gloria in Excelsis Deo, sung by the Libera boys’ choir (“Glory to God in the highest”). You can probably work out the Latin lyrics by yourself.
