Saturday Song(s)

Oh – so you thought Christmas was over? Not until Sunday! We celebrate Epiphany this weekend and with that I present you with a few songs.

As some of you know, I love Sufjan Stevens. He is not to everyone’s liking, but the simplicity and clarity of his work really calls to me.

In the next video, Ella Fitzgerald offers us the same song.

And finally, an instrumental version, played on a pipe organ.

  1. You’re right, the first version of the carol is the most moving.
    I love this song since learning it in Chicago public schools in the 50s.

    Do you think Giotto ever saw a real camel?

    Epiphany blessings to you.

  2. Lovely, Fran. Thank you! Such a spectrum! Fabulous 🙂
