An Pluiméir Ceolmhar Lyr Req: Wexford Carol (in Irish) (39) RE: Lyr Req: Irish Language Wexford Carol 27 Nov 03

I did a search for Irish Christmas Carols, knowing that a) the results would probably be meagre, and b) Philippa would probably be doing her best to fill the void, and seem to have been proved right on both counts ;).

In any event, this seems to be the best thread to reactivate for my purpose. I've just joined a scratch choir which gets together to sing carols every Christmas, and as the choir is based around the EU institutions and composed of people of many nationalities living in Brussels, the repertoire seeks to reflect the different nationalities represented.

The only Irish piece they've come up with is an English translation of "Bí a Íosa im chroíse" which, as far as I can see is not particularly a Christmas song.

So can anyone please point me towards something which is Irish, is if possible in an Irish-language version, is relevant to Christmas and is available on line with both words and stave notation? An arrangement in four or so voices would probably go down best, even if that is arguably not really in keeping with the Irish tradition.
