The Annual Carol-A-Long

Yep, it's that time of the year again: footnoteMaven's Blog Caroling. My first year's presentation was of a childhood favorite (whether it be December or July!), The Little Drummer Boy. Last year I included a video from a dog-blogger who'd created a video of dogs lip-synching to "Do They Know It's Christmas".

This year I chose a piece performed by one of my favorite groups, Celtic Woman. The voices of these women (and men, too) melt my heart, and the accompaniment fills the room with energy. I had the pleasure of seeing this ensemble perform a couple years ago and I was so impressed with every tune. I hope you enjoy this song and video. I present to you "Christmas Pipes".

Christmas Pipes

Words and music by Brendan Graham]

Christmas pipes, Christmas pipes
Calling us calling on Christmas night
Call us from far, call us from near
Oh play me your Christmas pipes

Christmas bells, Christmas bells
Over the hills and over the dells
Ringing out bright, ringing out clear
Oh ring me your Christmas bells

Christmas strings, Christmas strings
Playing the peace that Christmas brings
Fiddle and bow, gentle and low
Oh play me your Christmas strings

(1st verse)

O Holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night

Christmas choir, Christmas choir
Christmas carols 'round Christmas fire
Holy night, angels on high
Round up your Christmas choir

Christmas band, Christmas band
You're waiting for me with your Christmas band
Cymbal and drum, rattle and hum
March out your Christmas band

Good to be home to your Christmas pipes
