Yep … time for not only sacred Christmas music, but some fun as well.
Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, Op. 28 (selections)
CBC/McGill Youth Choir Gala perform excerpts from Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols with harpist Valérie Milot and conductor Jordan de Souza in this exclusive CBC/Radio-Canada video co-produced by CBC Music and Espace.mu.?
It’s December and the TQODs and other quotes will wait until 2014 now. It’s time. I will feature my typical Christmas music here, and any news I think I should share but some things will just have to wait to appear. It’s time to celebrate the birth.

Word of God, one with the Most High,
in Whom alone we have our hope,
Eternal Day of heaven and earth,
We break the silence of the peaceful night;
Saviour Divine, cast your eyes upon us!
Pour on us the fire of your powerful grace,
That all hell may flee at the sound of your voice;
Banish the slumber of a weary soul,
That brings forgetfulness of your laws!
O Christ, look with favour upon your faithful people
Now gathered here to praise you;
Receive their hymns offered to your immortal glory;
May they go forth filled with your gifts.
Veni, veni Emmanuel

Points for using actual violinists rather than electronic stand-ins, as is usually Nintendo’s way. Oboe is synthesized :(
