O Come, O Come, Emmanuel: Merry Christmas 2012

‘Twas the night before the night before Christmas, and all through the house, while the kids are running around I’m finally posting some music.

On the last day of school before Christmas break, I try to take an hour or two to record an audio Christmas card.  If you missed it, check out last year’s offering.  This year’s installment is O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, which is one of my favorite carols.  It’s also one of the oldest carols in common use today.

(By the way, for the real geeks, I wrote a few technical notes about how this song was made.)

Merry Christmas!
