O Come, O Come Emmanuel

Saturday, December 5, 2009 \AM\.\Sat\.


Something for the weekend.  It is Advent, so we are all hearing a lot of O Come, O Come Emmanuel at Mass, a song I have always loved.  The version above is from Casting Crowns, a Christian Rock group that my daughter is fond of.  I was stunned when I came across this, as I like it, and I usually refer to the music she enjoys as “animal killing music”!

I’ve always enjoyed the version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel done by Phillips, Craig  & Dean.  I could almost imagine a band of Jewish Zealots singing this before the birth of Christ.  The gentleman below in the video is using the song to teach American Sign Language.

Finally, few versions of O Come, O Come Emmanuel are more powerful than in the one in the video below.  I posted it last year but it deserves to be repeated.

I pray and hope that your Advent is going well.

In the meantime, enjoy this little clip in reminiscing a much more simpler time.
