Carol of the Bells – Vienna Boys Choir

Above all others this is the Christmassiest most beautiful carol and my absolute favourite.

    Oh mine too! It has a fascinating history too, it’s one of the most ancient folk songs still in use today (although of course the form we know has a modern arrangent) and was originally a Ukranian region pagan song for driving away the darkness in winter time. And still works!

    I’ve always loved this carol. It was on the ‘Home Alone’ soundtrack which I watched with my girls recently. It’s such a shame Garmin hijacked it for their ‘Give a, give a, give a Garmin’ Christmas radio ads for their GPS units…I try to not let it ruin it for me. Hope you had a great Christmas and have a brilliant New Year.
