about

I have always enjoyed the melody of this very old french Christmas Carol. This is the third piece of Christmas Music I'd planned to release this year as a single contribution to a 2012 Christmas Album but has now become the second a soon to follow trilogy of Christmas songs this year that was so not planned. Interesting where the music leads you. This is a Contemporary Electronic Music interpretation of an old French Christmas Carol most commonly titled in English as "Sing We Now Of Christmas". You may recognize it's intriguing melody.

lyrics

Sing we now of Christmas
Noel sing we here
Sing our grateful praises
To the maid so dear.

Chorus:
Sing we Noel!
The King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas
Sing we here, Noel!

From the Eastern kingdoms
Come the wise men far
Bearing ancient treasure
Following yonder star.

Chorus:
Sing we Noel!
The King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas
Sing we here, Noel!

From the distant mountains
Hear the trumpet sound
With angelic blessings
On the silent town.

Chorus:
Sing we Noel!
The King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas
Sing we here, Noel!

Come let us surround him
On this magic night
Gather here around him
Wondrous Babe of light.

Chorus:
Sing we Noel!
The King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas
Sing we here, Noel!
