did this arrangement of Angels We Have Heard On High in both high school and college. It's neat. Culloton also has a really cool arrangement of In Dulci Jubilo.



Other favorite Christmas choir pieces I've sung:
A Spotless Rose (Mealor)
Nunc Dimittis (Clausen)
Huron Carol (arr. Warland)
Alleluyah Sasa! He Is Born! (Allaway)
Patapan (arr. Conte)
Es ist ein Ros Enstsprungen (arr. Sandström
Magnificat (Esenvalds)
Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow (Thomas)
Wexford Carol (Culloton again! You magnificent bastard!)
In Silent Night (Southall)
Wake Awake (Christiansen)
The Hills Are Bare at Bethlehem (arr. Scholz)

Also sang lots of Handel and such, but I don't need to tell you that the Messiah is dope. Anyway,

Speaking of, our new Christmas album came out yesterday. Actually recorded a bunch of original songs this year.

I famously hate "Carol of the Bells".

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

^^^Culloton is such a boss, we did both of those you mentioned. Dulci Jubilo is an all-timer for me, from any choir I’ve ever been with

Hmmmm. I had no idea 'In Dulci Jubilo' was a Christmas song. I'd never heard the choral version---------just that old Mike Oldfield panpipe one.

So, not to go off-topic, here, but one thing that always makes me laugh is 'Jingle Bells, Batman Smells'. Somehow it's so childish and inane that it switches around to wonderful. I love it.

That is a video game lobby song sung by 9-year-olds who haven't learned they are annoying tf out of everyone lol.

It is a good tune though.

The Sailor Moon version of Last Christmas, the one where they repeat the chorus seven times, is the absolute worst time I've had with a song.

I love a lot of Christmas songs, regardless of their tone, because I love Christmas itself!



Unfortunately, I live with people that want to go into a time machine and kill every person that made a Christmas song in history so I can't play them in the open.

So I hadn't fully listened to our latest album when I posted it, but we had our concert last night and I'm really impressed with it. This one nearly made me cry.

Worst Christmas song by far is 'Twelve Days of Christmas'. Nobody likes it. Nobody wants to hear it, nobody wants to sing it. It wears out its welcome about a tenth of the way through. It sucks. Only good part of it is when it ends, and you can rest. And yet even that is made bittersweet by the knowledge that, sooner or later, some asshead is going to start singing it again.

Now that Christmas is over I can admit I don't like most/all Christmas songs

That song actually kinda gives me anxiety, which I'm already wracked with constantly.
