I know, it’s a little early for a Christmas carol, but this is one that is new to me. I have heard it, but so rarely and I had even not known what it was called. I had never sung this until yesterday, when I recorded a duet. I then fell in love with this beautiful melody and decided to record a solo piece.
From a Parkinson’s perspective, i had to manage my breathing and only just achieved that. There is little room to take in enough air, given that I made a point of extending quite a number of notes. I hope that I this compromise was not a step too far, in terms of song quality.
Take a look at the music video, at the link below and perhaps leave a comment to say whether you like my take on this beautiful carol:
