Hey! It’s still the Christmas season, and we’ve still got some proclaiming to do.
This is the King’s College Choir, at Cambridge, singing We Three Kings–and oh, the voices of those soloists! Music gives glory to God who created us in His image, with the capacity to create beautiful things.
Proclaim! Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.
From The Little Drummer Boy, Guy Penrod segues right into We Three Kings: requested by Jeremy. We’re getting our carol contest back on track!
From Australian TV, a few years ago–Hugh Jackman, David Hobson, and Peter Cousen performing We Three Kings: and if this doesn’t pump you up for Christmas, I don’t know what will.
Hey! One thing we absolutely don’t have to worry about is running out of great Christmas music. And yet our first Christmas Carol Contest has slowed way down after just a week or so. The leading carol is still on top with just 25 views.
So many of you have never requested a hymn–so why not break the ice now?
How to win: If, say, on Dec. 14 you requested Gesu Bambino and it got 32 views that day, and no other hymn got that many on any other day, then you’d be the winner.
The prize is an autographed copy of one of my books. If you’ve already got them all, you can hold out for No. 11, The Temptation, which is just about ready to be published.
But we all win if we proclaim the birth of Jesus Christ Our Lord, and help this Christmas season draw the human heart to Him.
“Thewhiterabbit” has reminded us that today is Epiphany, the 12th Day of Christmas: and what could be more suitable to the occasion than We Three Kings?
Actually, the Bible (in Matthew Chapter 2) never calls them kings, but only “wise men from the East.” Then again, they bring gifts fit for a king, and not easily obtainable on a wise man’s salary–gold and frankincense, and myrrh. So maybe the tradition’s not far off the mark.
I love this rendition of the carol by Hugh Jackman, David Hodson, and Peter Cousen, from a Christmas special on Australian TV. They put their hearts into it, and it’s heartening to know that some of our entertainers, at least, love to praise the Lord Our God.
Our friend from Australia, “Optimal Play,” found this one for us: what a rousing rendition of We Three Kings! I don’t know if you have access to the comments, when I post a youtube video; but these guys sing it like they mean it… because they really mean it. Thanks, OP!
I hope you enjoy this slightly unusual rendition of the traditional carol, We Three Kings: by Celtic Woman, with a bagpipe intro. The thing to remember is that Christmas is for every kindred, every tribe: for of one blood God made all the nations of the world.
Christmas is almost here–so let’s have your Christmas hymn requests.
This is the Welsh Male Voice Choir of South Africa–just to let you see that us guys can sing, too. Well, we certainly can if we’re Welsh.
I’m still taking requests, folks, so I hope you haven’t run out of them already.
I think I’ve caught up on reader requests with this one, We Three Kings by Mediaeval Baebes. Somewhere along the way I’d like to find a version sung by men with deep voices, but this one’s nice.
This is one we always used to sing in Sunday school. Hey, remember when we sang Christmas carols in public school?
Those were better days than these.
