I’m completely in the midst of an All Christmas Music, All the Time phase. I won’t even apologize. The local radio station that’s enabling my listening habits is also running a school choir competition, and every day they play recordings from 3 semifinalists. Yesterday, one of the school choirs sang this song. I can’t say it’s a very popular Christmas carol; I think I heard it for the first time when we sang it at church last year. But when I heard the choir sing it yesterday, I was reminded of the song again. Despite the kind of depressing name, it’s quite a beautiful song, and a good one for advent, I think.
