Subject: RE: My favourite Christmas song

Date: 12 Dec 10 - 08:00 PM

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.

Just Listened to Charlie Williams' "O Holy Night" (which I'd posted as being one of my favourites in 2007!)
Great voice, but agree with ClaireBear: the backing is a wee bit heavy,in danger of over-powering even such a strong voice as yours, but good luck Charlie.

CHRISTMAS TIME'S A-COMIN' by Tex Logan
Popularized by Bill Monroe

Holly's in the window home where the wind blows
Can't walk for running Christmas time is coming.

CHORUS: Can't you hear them bells ringin'
Bringin' joy to all Don't you hear them singin'
When it's snowing I'll be going back to my country home
Christmas times a' coming Christmas times a' coming
Christmas times a' coming and I know I'm going home.

Instrumental break

Home fires burning my heart's yearning
For the folks at home when Christmas time is coming
Snowflakes falling my old home is calling
Tall pines are humming Christmas time is coming

Holly's in the window home where the wind blows
Can't walk for running Christmas time is coming.

"Christ Child's Lullaby" is my favorite too. I am rather fond of all of the old carols in the Christmas Revels Songbook. Although my second favorite is a German one, "Es ist ein Ros' Entsprungen." You probably know it as "Lo How a Rose E'er Blooming." I'm still trying to memorize the German words.

Sorry Artful Codger, for me it works as good or better than "Crimond" or "Amazing Grace" and it his own well presented version of the words, how many of us can say that?
I would agree, it's not quite "Cranbrook" or "Pentonville" but what is.

My apologies, but it seems a bit gratuitous to set "While Shepherds" to such an overused and lackluster tune like "The Homes" (aka "Paddy West" aka "Trampers and Hawkers"...), particularly when there are already so many settings for this carol, many delightful and relatively obscure. Indeed, it is clearly the most often reset carol text; avoiding the familiar "Old Winchester" tune is as easy as fishing with dynamite. I listed over forty alternatives in a recently revived thread, and that only took a bit of Googling. There's nothing wrong with creating yet another setting, of course, but realize that the bar has already been set pretty high.

My favourites are The Holly and the Ivy and the Cherry Tree Carol . I also like the wassail ones if they can be included here - particularly the Wassail All Over the Town
I always get a good laugh out of Adeste Fidelis as crooned by Bing Crosby and the strange lyrics of The First Noel - all part of the Christmas spirit.

The one I find most annoying is the one by either Dire Straights or Chris Rhea or some shitty cross between the two its called , Travelling Home for Christmas.

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."

My favorite one to sing has got to be "Shepherds Arise" (here sung by Poor Old Horse). My favorite one to hear would probably be somewhat less UK-centric that I could never hope to sing adequately myself, like this version of the African American spiritual Rise Up Shepherd and Follow by Cantus, or this truly rockin' verion of ""la cambo me fai mau"" from Provence (this version is sans Christmas content, though; failing Malicorne's version which I can't find online, here's a choral version with the Christmas content in: "La jambe me fait mal" sung by Chorale Jacou). I'm really fond of the Sicilian "Bagpiper's Carol" too, but have to get back to work now...

Ever since I heard it, I have loved this song
THE GIFT by Stephanie Davis Recluse Music (BMI)
http://www.stephaniedavis.net/The%20Gift%20Tracks/The%20Gift%20tracks%2012/tg-v.mp3

A poor orphan girl named Maria was walking to market one day
She stopped for to rest by the roadside where a bird with a broken wing lay
A few moments passed 'till she saw it, for its feathers were covered with sand
But soon, clean and wrapped, it was traveling in the warmth of Maria's small hand

She happily spent her last peso on a cage made of rushes and twine
She fed it loose corn from the market and watched it grow stronger with time

Now the Christmas Eve service was coming, and the church shone with tinsel and light
And all of the townfolk brought presents to lay by the manger that night
There were diamonds and incense and perfumes in packages fit for a king
But for one ragged bird in a small cage, Maria had nothing to bring

She waited till just before midnight so no one would see her go in
And crying, she knelt by the manger, for her gift was unworthy of Him

Then a voice spoke to her through the darkness: "Maria, what brings you to me?"
"If the bird in the cage is your offering, open the door—let me see!"
Though she trembled, she did as He asked her, and out of the cage the bird flew
Soaring up into the rafters on a wing that had healed good as new

Just then the midnight bells rang out and the little bird started to sing
A song that no words could recapture, whose beauty was fit for a king

Now Maria felt blessed just to listen to that cascade of notes sweet and long
As her offering was lifted to heaven by the very first nightingale song

I really like some of the old folk carols like 'The Holly and the Ivy', 'Coventry Carol', and 'The Truth Sent from Above'. I've recently taken the words of 'While Shepherds WAtched Their Flocks By Night' (I like the words but really don't like the usual tune) and reset them to the Irish tune 'The Homes of Donegal'. I'm recording a version of this to send out to the folks on my Christmas list this year.

"O Holy Night" has long been a favorite. I prefer it with a full choir, a really powerful tenor or a rich brass ensemble, as an instrumental. "Mary's Boy Child" is another, probably because it reminds me of my early calypso days in the 1950's. There is an innocence about it and a pretty melody line.

"Oh Holy Night" is my all time favorite, although Christmas in the trenches gets me weeping every blasted time. My favorite this year is a new one we're doing by Johnathn Coulton called "Chiron Beta Prime." Starts out:

"This year has been a little crazy for the Andersons.
You may recall we had some trouble last year.
The robot council had us banished to an asteroid.
That hasn't undermined our holiday cheer.
And we know it's almost Christmas from the marks we make on the wall. And that's our favorite time of year.

Chorus: Merry Christmas, from Chiron Beta Prime-where we're working in a mine for our robot overlords-did I say overlords-I meant protectors-Merry Christmas, from Chiron Beta Prime..."

Maybe you gotta be a sci-fi geek to appreciate it...

Subject: Lyr Add: I HEARD THE BELLS ON CHRISTMAS DAY
From: erosconpollo
Date: 02 Dec 07 - 08:10 AM

I'm quite fond of I HEARD THE BELLS ON CHRISTMAS DAY. Words by Longfellow and lovely singable melody by Calkin:

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Till ringing, singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men."

It's not just a 'Christmas song' but also a bit of a prayer for peace, written by Longfellow during the War Between the States.
