Day 23: Today’s Christmas Song

Today’s post is the first of doubled-up songs as we head into Christmas.

Song one is the classic Do You Hear What I Hear? sung by Anne Murray.

Our school choir learned this song when I was in grade 8 in Ontario. I sang an alto harmony, but I also listened to the other voices, including the sopranos’ melody. I went home and converted the melody and harmony parts to keyboard. Consequently, I still remember most of the alto harmony I sang then, and can sing along with Anne Murray’s version–forty years later!

Today’s bonus song is O Come All Ye Faithful by Celine Dion. No reason. I just like it. (Posted by CelineDionVEVO.)
