Advent #5 - 'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen'

I love Annie Lennox's version of 'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen' from 'A Christmas Cornucopia'. It's exactly as it should be sung - loud and uninhibited and joyful. I like the penny whistle and the 'traditional' drumming and it blends excellently with Annie's voice. The video is a triumph with Annie leading her band through the snow covered wood and into the village. It's a mix of old and new and it all works for me.
