Christmas Music Countdown - #7

To see the rest of the countdown - click here!

Number seven is a delightfully traditional carol - "O Come All Ye Faithful". The rendition of it here is done by the Irish singing group Celtic Woman. You will see more of them over the next week; their singing style is perfect for the types of songs that are sung at Christmas time - like listening to angels sing.

Most people only know the first verse of the song, but the subsequent verses are as good a summary of basic orthodox Christology that you will find. Usually, at midnight Mass, it is the opening hymn of that celebration after listening to the Christmas Proclamation. Enjoy!
