O Holy Night – update and goat version!

evelyn @ 8:49 pm

Further to yesterday’s post, there have been developments.

It seems that the news that ‘O Holy Night’ might be left out this year has spread from the choir into the parish. The jungle drums started beating, and our priest received a stream of complaints.  I told him that although we had bowed to pressure and decided to have it as a choir piece, I didn’t think this would appease the protestors.  They would want the words, so that they could sing it themselves.

So he has kindly agreed to run off the words in time for Christmas Eve. The anti-Holy-Nighters have been routed, but have accepted the inevitable with a good grace.

Finishing now with a wonderful clip from Michael’s comment on the previous post.  Couldn’t resist it!

Merry Christmas, everyone!
