Thread Name: My favourite Christmas songs
Subject: RE: My favourite Christmas song
I just realized that what all those have in common is that they're all shepherds songs. I've always been a sucker for shepherds plays, too, so I guess that fits. Also: I love the Sacred Harp piece Sherburne, which is -- of course -- a setting of "While shepherds watched their flocks by night."
