Sussex Carol by American Elephant

I love Christmas carols. I love all kinds of Christmas carols — traditional, contemporary, choral, jazz, even country and some rock. I’ve yet to find a rap Christmas song that I can tolerate, and I doubt I ever will, but for the most part my taste in carols is very wide-ranging and eclectic.  But I think my favorites are traditional carols that you don’t hear much anymore, and lesser known renditions of those you do.

The Sussex carol is one such song, and you can’t get much more majestic than this rendition by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir with the King’s Singers (famous English singing group), with the full tabernacle orchestra, including bell choir and pipe organ. This concert was broadcast a few years back on PBS, so they may play it again.

Pretty good way to start off the season. Hope you like!

(Update: You know, I still like the version by the Choir of King’s College I played last year better. )
