Phoebe requested this, The First Noel, so I picked this rendition by the King’s College Choir, at Cambridge.
As for the carol contest, the leading carol has 44 views; that was 12 days ago, and no one’s come close since.
Only four days left till Christmas!
I seem to be posting a lot of Nat King Cole, this Christmas season–but who’s complaining?
Requested by TheWhiteRabbit, The First Noel. Sung by Nat King Cole.
Reminder to Christmas Carol Contest entrants–you can request any Christmas hymn you want, even if it’s been posted before. Let’s get into the spirit!
Our friend SlimJim has requested it here, and my friend Jessicafischerqueen has posted it on my chess page, so what can I say but here it is? The First Noel, sung by Bing Crosby. You’ll look long and hard to find an equal to his voice.
Peaceful, mellow… The First Noel, played on the guitar by Nanae Fujiwara. For me it evokes the spirit of a still and snowy Christmas Eve. Relax and let it flow.
Requested by Phoebe, The First Noel–and I thought Bing Crosby would be just the ticket.
Let’s keep the hymns coming, everybody. Tomorrow’s the last day of the contest! Which does not mean we have to stop posting Christmas music. Hey, I’ve been known to post it in August…
Erlene requested this, wanted to be sure we didn’t leave it out–The First Noel, sung by the Kings College Choir at Cambridge, England. “Born is the King of Israel…” And He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
I couldn’t let Christmas pass without The First Noel, another carol we were once allowed to sing in school. I hope you like this rendition by the Dublin Welsh Male Voice Choir.
Let’s have some more requests! Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
This is another contribution from “jessicafischerqueen.” I have no idea who these Crash Test Dummies are, but trust me–this turns out to be quite nice: The First Noel, performed by Crash Test Dummies.
Come on–let’s do Christmas! Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
This just about brought me to tears, it’s so beautiful–The First Noel, sung by Elvis Presley. Forget the silly costumes and the rock-‘n’-roll. God gave this man the voice of an angel, and he knew how to use it.
Now, folks, Christmas is coming up fast–and don’t leave the daily hymn selection to me and Erlene. We all have very much to celebrate, and good news to proclaim to all the world. Come, get into the spirit of it all! Especially those of you who haven’t yet requested a hymn. If this is your first visit to this blog, you can still request a hymn. So step right up!
I wouldn’t want it said I passed over this carol.
As a bonus, there are chord diagrams on the screen so you can play along with your own guitar. It’s been a long, long time since I did that. Those basic chords are old friends.
The First Noel, as sung by Chris Tomlin–enjoy it.
