On the Fourth Day of Christmas, Alfie Boe Sang…

...Hark the Herald Angels Sing at the Mo Tab Choir Christmas Concerts in Salt Lake City:

This was back in 2012 and was part of that year’s Christmas series of concerts featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.  Just glorious!

Hark the Herald Angels Sing as we know it today is quite different to how it was originally written.  Charles Wesley wrote the words in 1739 but the tune as know it today was written a hundred years later by Felix Mendelssohn.  However, it was not specifically written as an accompaniment to Wesley’s words – an adaptation by William H Cummings made it into one of the most well known carols we have today.

Here is a pared down snippet from Alfie at Abbey Road’s Carols by Kindlelight in 2014:

Those sexy specs are starting to make me feel like the buttons on my blouse!

    Thanks for these seldom seen songs( Carols by Kindlelight) with Alfie. I liked the change in rhythm makes it a little more contemporary and probably easier to ‘sing a bit’!
