Here’s another blessing a lot of us could use today–a glorious, beautiful hymn, Gloria in Excelsis Deo, performed by the Libera Boys Choir with Fiona Pears, Robert Prizeman, Ian Tilley, and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
Requested by Joshua–and thanks, Joshua, for that!
I usually play this hymn around Christmas time, but really, it’s good for anytime–Gloria in Excelsis Deo by Saint-Saens, sung by the Libera boys’ choir. You can almost understand the Latin lyrics, if you just relax and listen.
This is a brand-new video by the Libera Boys’ Choir, singing Once in Royal David’s City. How they get children to sing like this, it’s a marvel.
The Christmas Carol Contest is over until we do it again next year, but the Christmas season isn’t, and we’re still taking Christmas hymn requests. Especially if you can come up with one we haven’t used yet!
Before I sicken my soul with writing up some nooze, let me try to fortify it with this: Gloria in Excelsis Deo by St. Saens, sung by the Libera boys’ choir.
This is not an entry in the Christmas Carol Contest. I can’t enter my own contest. So far today, we have no entrys. C’mon, now, everybody!
“Thewhiterabbit” has requested Once in Royal David’s City, and I thought this performance of it by Libera rather nice.
Running out of time, folks, to request Christmas hymns–so if you’ve got a request to make, sing out.
I have to take Robbie to the vet this morning, but first the hymn for the day–Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee, performed by Libera boys’ choir with orchestra backup.
Don’t worry: they just want to check and see how the treatment is working for her. We think the signs are positive.
Turn up the volume on this one! Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee–music by Beethoven; sung by Libera.
If this hymn doesn’t reach you, I don’t know what will.
