Top 5 Christmas Carols


monica

Recommended Posts

So we have come to that time of year, where we hear Christmas carols all round us, I know not everyone is a fan, however we cant resist having a sing along. So for the sake of conducting an EDF carol service, I would like to know what are your favourite carols. Then the top 5 carols will be sung in the parade on the 19th, even those who dont agree with the parade, take part.

Thanks

Mine are

Once in Royal David City

Oh come all year faithful

Oh little town of Bethlehem

Ave Maria

Away in a manger

Fairytale of New York.


That's a carol to me


2000 Miles

Power of Love

Little Drummer Boy


That's all I know.


Is Ave Maria a Christmas Carol, Monica?? I went to Lourdes in the summer once - they sang it every day - probably practising for Christmas...


NB - I typed the above line and then checked google and it is a Christmas song (apparently) - but being an honest guy I have left my comment there in full expectation of much ridicule. (Still not sure why they were singing Christmas carols in the mid summer in the south of France tho).

Well Mic Mac we can have a go at fairytale but I will need a Sean,maybe not drunk but slightly merry.

Ave Maria is technically a Christmas carol, however I think its recognised generally as a tune for all occasions. I love it because my uncle sings it so well.


mario and friends torremolinos 7

My uncle singing ahhh

Well, I've been to Church Weddings and they've sung it there too (and it wasn't Christmas)...and at funerals! So I don't know!

Understand the relevance of 5 carols to the parade, but surely if it's a Hit Parade of carols it has to be 9?


I'm very fond of In Dulce Jubilo and O Holy Night, as well as all the rafter-shakers like Hark the Herald.


We're rehearsing an extract from Bach's Christmas Oratorio in choir at the moment, and it's just beautiful. Bloody hard, but so lovely.

Ave Maria is just the Hail Mary in Latin.


The clue's in the name.

Fairy tale of New York If you look at the two artists and the lyrics it shouldn't work, but it does and its beautiful.

Last Cristmas - Wham sorry but I like it !

White Christmas - Otis Redding

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Frank Sinatra

I'll Be Home For Christmas - Diana Krall


And anything by Nat King Cole

    • Aria and Dan were again amazing in their quick response to my problem (leaking toilet flush), their excellent workmanship and super politeness.  I have used them several times before and am always impressed. Last but not least,  they charge completely honestly.  Thank you!
    • Fair point. They could then blame themselves rather than older people for apparently ruining their futures.
    • I would suggest the fabric stores around soho.  But if you don’t mind shopping online, I’ve found a couple that might suit what you’re looking for online:   Orange https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/atcham-braid-col-04-orange-cream/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh9GWPOUamGa77QNpGdANkK0r7F7y-4uCliLseY-dfUcZDCTMLDAXQRoCU7kQAvD_BwE   Green https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/plain-straight-gimp-braid-col-617-green/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh-63bOJYHpbGmACA9iPsRXmwmX8iY5y8Ks6XxDq1lnVLdE8gp-pfjxoCXs4QAvD_BwE   i would also suggest Etsy for things like this.   Hope you find what you’re looking for 😊
    • We live nearby and often chatted with friendly Joe. Sad to see him go, he said he was retiring. Heard it’s going to be a café/coffee shop on the day he left.
