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.
