‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

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.

‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

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.

‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

Please, Mr. Computer! Can I please post my hymn today? It’s Gloria in Excelsis Deo, sung by Libera. You like that, don’t you?

Bonus Hymn: ‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

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.

‘Morning Has Broken’

I only learned recently that this was originally a hymn, not a pop song, so hear we have it as a hymn. Morning Has Broken, sung by the Libera boys’ choir.

By Request, ‘God Rest You Merry Gentlemen’

Everything by the Libera boys’ choir is superb, and this one’s no exception. Requested by Joshua, God Rest You Merry Gentlemen.

Sometimes Christmas makes me feel like I’m about five years old again. Do any of you feel that, ever?

‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’ (Libera)

Usually I save this hymn for Christmas-time, but I had a desire for it yesterday–Gloria in Excelsis Deo, by Saint-Saens, sung by the Libera boys’ choir.

We’re open all day for hymn requests, by the way. Just leave a comment anywhere.

By Request, ‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

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!

Encore: ‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

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.

‘Once in Royal David’s City’ (Libera)

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!
