Thread Name: My favourite Christmas songs
Subject: RE: My favourite Christmas song
Oops that was ambiguous: I meant that O Holy Night was one of my favourites: Charlie's version is new. My kids' High school choir did a pretty good version.
Not sure about Tim's setting of "While Shepherds Watched" especially after spending a whole workshop last summer on that one carol to many other lovely tunes. A friend of mine is the habit of writing songs, and then sayung "It would fit to Tramps and Hawkers", to which I say "leave T & H alone and write your own tune". Lots of songs fit to the same tune if they have the same number of syllables per line.
