Maybe my favorite Carol. This version is performed by Aled. I first heard this song performed by the Tampa Gay Men’s Chorus when I lived down here the first time in the Tampa Theater. Things weren’t great in my life at the time, but I remember looking up at that blue lighted ceiling with the tiny lights in it as stars, and I finally felt like things would be OK. This one is worth taking a few minutes out of your day to hear.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZL-B2B-aB0]
Many years ago, when I lived here in Tampa the first time, I attended the Gay Men’s Chorus Christmas Concert at the Tampa Theater. The ceiling there is painted blue and has tiny lights in it simulating a night sky. I hadn’t noticed that until the Chorus sang this song and my eyes were drawn upward as I enjoyed the music and saw this amazing sight overhead. I think this has been my favorite carol ever since.
