Encore, ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ (Fountainview Academy)

I just felt like hearing O Come All Ye Faithful one more time. And it’s been years and years since I had anything like a scenic train ride. This is the Kettle Valley Railway in British Columbia, with the Fountainview Orchestra aboard.

‘O Come, All Ye Faithful’ (Fountainview)

The students at Fountainview Academy always have such interesting settings for their hymns. This is O Come, All Ye Faithful, aboard the Kettle Valley Railway in Summerland, British Columbia.

By Request, ‘O Come, All Ye Faithful’

You don’t want me to post any more nooze today, do you? (“Of course they don’t!” Byron the Quokka advises me.) How about more Nat King Cole instead?

Requested by Phoebe, a favorite Christmas carol for just about everybody, O Come, All Ye Faithful… sung by Nat King Cole.

By Request, ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ (Il Divo)

Requested by Jeremy, O Come All Ye Faithful: from Il Divo’s 2008 Christmas Concert in London.

Keep the hymns coming, everybody–contest ends at the end of Christmas Day.

By Request, ‘Adeste Fideles’

Phoebe asked for Adeste Fideles–and there were so many lovely renditions to choose from (pardon the dangling preposition), no way to go wrong. So I hope you all enjoy this one, sung by Andrea Bocelli.

By Request, ‘O, Come All Ye Faithful’

I love the fact that Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born in a stable and laid in a manger. But we should also remember that His is a truly royal birth–King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. His humility and His glory are both part of who He is.

Requested by “Thewhiterabbit,” O, Come All Ye Faithful, sung by the King’s College Choir at Cambridge.

‘O Come All Ye Faithful’

This is sung by someone named F. Oakley, which is all I know about it–other than that it’s a very nice version of one of our favorite Christmas carols.

And I hope you like it, folks, because now I don’t know whether this blog’ll still be here ten minutes from now, WordPress has got me so confused.

Get your Christmas hymn requests in while you can! We have good news to proclaim!

‘How Firm a Foundation’

In my old church that is no more, we sang this hymn to the melody of “O, Come, All Ye Faithful”–but I have a feeling that this melody, here, is more usual.

This is a beautiful performance. I’d like to know who sang this, but that information, I couldn’t find. But thank you, whoever you are.

Hymn, ‘O Come, All Ye Faithful’

You didn’t think I’d let Christmas Eve pass without posting O, Come, All Ye Faithful, did you? No way.

This is that choir from Newcastle again: just beautiful. Open your heart, and Jesus will come in. Open up and see.

Hymn: ‘How Firm a Foundation’

For many Christians this hymn has another tune. But in the church I grew up in, which no longer exists, How Firm a Foundation was sung to the tune of a Christmas carol, O Come, All Ye Faithful.

This, above, is the only example of it I could find. Yes, it’s only a piano playing. There is something to be said for simplicity: I believe the Lord likes it.

So find a magnifying glass for the lyrics, and sing along.
