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!


‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

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!


Encore: ‘Once in Royal David’s City’

“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.


‘Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee’ (Libera)

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.
