"This is the Truth sent from above" - sang it for many years at school and adored it; didn't hear it again for many more years, and then bought the OUP Book of Carols, and found it in there... and only then realised that it was a true traditional carol collected in Herefordshire by Ralph Vaughan Williams... and I've started singing it in the club - gave it it's first airing yesterday... and may sing it in another club again next week if I get the chance!

Other than that "Jesus Christ the Apple Tree" - a superb modern one.. think it's Elizabeth Posten??

Oh and Peter Cornelius' "Three Kings"... which I think someone else mentioned earlier; I used to sing special choir at school, and we got to sing the interesting accompaniment to it every year... it still feels special.

I'm with Geordie, not sure of the Boars Head carol though, I only know the Boars Head as the local in Andy's village! I'd put Mike Harding's song first. My children used to sing a song when they were in primary school called 'Wind through the Olive trees' really liked that. And I'd add The Holly and the Ivy.

Ooh Ooh Ooh and In the Bleak Mid Winter Spect I'll think of something else later.

I also like "The Christmas Song", especially as sung by Nat King Cole.

Carol-wise I do like "It came upon the midnight clear", as the words are very pertinent for this day and age:

"...but man, at war with man, hears not
the love song which they bring.
Oh hush the noise, ye men of strife,
and hear the angels sing!"

At the other extreme, in 1964 (I think), Dora Bryan released a Christmas single called, "All I want for Christmas is a Beatle" with the B side of "If I were a fairy on a Christmas tree". I can remember bits of them:

All I want for Christmas is a Beatle
not a teddy bear, just a Beatle.
I told mum that nothing else would do:
there are four, so she can have one too.
I don't care whichever one she gets me -
Ringo, Paul, John, George - they're all the same.
I can't wait for Christmas day to come,
'cos all I want for Christmas is a Beatle!

and

If I were a fairy on a Christmas tree,
oh how happy and gay I'd be.
I'd weave my magical dreams of joy
for every little girl and every little boy.

I bought it - Cheesy, I know, but I was only just approaching 13!

Split between "O Holy night" mentioned well above, and "Three Kings from Persian lands Afar": the latter nearly always got done at the final assembly/carol service at the end of term at school before Christmas.
When I'm doing the Christmas day cooking I always put on the Praetorius Christmas Mass, but also hoping to get the Czech Christmas Mass in my stocking this year!

WHITE SHEEPDOG

I'm screaming at a white sheepdog,
One who is sitting in my chair.
It's a thing I'm dreading,
The way he's shedding,
And covering everything with hair.

I'm screaming at a white sheepdog,
And should he visit you some night,
May his bark be worse than his blight,
And may all your furniture be white.

*If anyone knows who wrote this, plaease let me know. I heard it at an open stage about 15 years ago. I can't even remember the name of the guy who sang it.


It's from an issue of "Mad Magazine", somewhere around 1965.

I like "And Unto Us A Child Is Born" (from Handel's "Messiah") that I wanted to use it as a recessional at my wedding, but my mother said "NO!" and my wife said "HELL NO!"

But it's still a really good piece of music.

"Silent Night," in either English or German, is my favorite song.

I heartily dislike anything promoting the commercialism of the season.

Subject: Lyr Add: THE CHIMNEY SONG (Bob Rivers)
From: Becca72
Date: 13 Dec 06 - 10:54 AM

Serious Christmas song would be "I believe in Father Christmas" by Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

For a novelty song I like The Chimney Song:

THE CHIMNEY SONG
Bob Rivers Comedy Corp.


There's something stuck up in the chimney
And I don't know what it is,
But it's been there all night long.
Well, I waited up for Santa all Christmas night
But he never came and it don't seem right.
And there's something in the chimney
And it doesn't make a sound,
But I wish you Merry Christmas.

There's something stuck up in the chimney
And I don't know what it is,
But it's been there all week long.
Well, the dog keeps barking up the chimney flue
And we don't know what we're going to do.
Cause there's something in the chimney
And it doesn't move around,
And it's been a week since Christmas.

There's something stuck up in the chimney
And I don't know what it is,
But it's been there all month long.
Well, it's jammed up tight above the fireplace
Now the house smells funny, such a big disgrace.
That there's something in the chimney
And it doesn't talk at all,
And it's been there since last Christmas.

There's something stuck up in the chimney
And I don't know what it is,
But it's been there all year long.
I'll been waiting up for Santa like I did last year
But my brother says, "He's already here."
And he's stuck up in the chimney
And he doesn't say a word
And he'll be there every Christmas.
And we'll have him every Christmas.

The King
Cherry Tree Carol (the version we sing)
Holly and the Ivy (same here)
Almost anything sung by Nowell Sing We Clear

I'm also very fond of the melody for "Once In Royal David's City" but I don't find the words particularly exciting.

I also love the harmonies in "Silent Night" and someone back in the '60s did a great jazz version (on bass flute -- very low register) of "We Three Kings of Orient Are".

I always HAVE to sing the Walt Kelly's version of "Deck the Halls", at some point, too.

And --

"Joy to the world
Cuz cats are here.
They fill our hearts with joy.
Let every one
Prepare them food.
And let them eat their fill,
And let them eat their fill,
And let, and let, them eat their fill."

Hmm, tough one. I think Christ Child's Lullaby is my favorite. I've got two versions on CD, one in English by Kathy Mattea and one in Gaelic on a Green Linnet Christmas compilation. I also like Father Christmas by The Kinks and Christmas at Ground Zero by Weird Al, when I'm in the mood for something less than serious.

As for most hated: pick any of the modern crap being played in most malls. Santa Baby, Mery Christmas Baby, etc.

The worst Christmas songs tend to be those issued by pop or rock stars cashing in on the festive season - the logic seems to be 'any old crap will do, the fans will buy it in droves anyway'.

Sadly, many of these songs tend to reappear year after year on these awful compilation CDs that get advertised on TV. Who buys them every year? Do these people forget they already have all these songs on last year's CD?

Some of the worst IMO:

Paul McCartney - Wonderful Christmastime
Elton John - Step Into Christmas
Denis Waterman & George Cole - What Are We Gonna Get For 'Er Indoors
etc., etc.

Does anyone else have any most hated Christmas songs?

Hard to say - I think it depends on the mood I'm in. Joe Offer already mentioned "Carol of the Bells", which is certainly a favorite. I'm also quite fond of "He is Born, Holy Child Divine".

For "secular seasonal songs", I have always thought that "Winter Wonderland" holds up well on repeated listening (but without that abominable added verse about pretending that the snowman is a circus clown, which the older kids then knock down - awful!)

If I had to choose just one, it would definitely be Fairytale of New York. I feel I ought to choose the Christy Moore version because it's more folky; but when it comes down to it I don't think the Pogues' version with Kirsty MacColl can be beaten - so that's the one for me.

'QUEM PASTORES' from a ms. of Hoenfurth, Germany c. 1410

He whom joyous shepherds praised,
Whenthe angel's song was raised,
Bidding them be not amazed,
Heaven's all-glorious King is born.

He whom sages westward faring,
Myrrh and gold and incense bearing,
Worshipped, bowing low before him,
Reigns as King this happy morn.

Now rejoice with Jesus' mother,
Praise her new-born son, our brother,
Angels vie with one another,
Praising him beyond the sky.

Sing to Christ, the King who reigneth,
Yet of Mary manhood gaineth,
Born our God; let us adore him:
Glory be to God on high.

As I, personally, put more emphasis on the solstice than on Christ's birth at this time of year, I wrote some of my own lyrics for the some of the verses (chorus stays the same):

Oh the Holly tree bears a blossom
As white as any milk
And the first light of this Yule dawn
Is shimmering like the silk

Oh the Holly tree bears a berry
As green as any grass
And the growing light of these days
Reminds us that winter will pass
