‘For Unto Us a Child Is Born’

Christmas is coming! And we have this hymn by special request from TheWhiteRabbit: Unto Us a Child Is Born–by the London Symphony Orchestra, no less. Text from the Bible, Isaiah 9:6. Music by Handel, from The Messiah.

Don’t forget, the Christmas carol contest starts the day after tomorrow.

By Request, ‘For Unto Us a Child is Born’

And the first entry in our Christmas carol contest is by TheWhiteRabbit: For Unto Us a Child is Born, from Handel’s Messiah, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. And you know this Bible verse, here set to music: Isaiah 9:6.

By Request, ‘For Unto Us a Child Is Born’

And the first entry today in our first annual Christmas Carol Contest is For Unto Us a Child Is Born, from G.F. Handel’s Messiah–the words of Isaiah 9:6-7 set to music and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra–requested by our friend, “TheWhiteRabbit.”

(Yesterday’s leader was Mary, Did You Know?, with 16 views.)

By Request, ‘For Unto Us a Child is Born’

“Thewhiterabbit” recommended this: from G.F. Handel’s The Messiah, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, For Unto Us a Child is Born. The text, of course, is from Isaiah 9:6, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.”

Come, Lord Jesus, Come!

‘Come Ye Disconsolate’

Susan requested this one: a new version of Come, Ye Disconsolate, performed by the Spire Choir of the London Symphony Orchestra, with an added verse by Rob Gardner. Let me see if I can post the lyrics for you: the original was by Thomas Moore (The Minstrel Boy, Those Endearing Young Charms), in 1816.
