From Songs of Saints and Scholars, the latest CD by the Notre Dame Folk Choir under the direction of Steve Warner, we offer this poignant and simple Christmas anthem by the late Fr. Chrysogonus Waddell. The lilting, Irish-influenced melody brings an ancient text to life to inspire us today. You may wish to alternate soloists or choir sections on selected stanzas for variety. Plucked guitar adds a harp-like quality to this serene work that sings, "Let every heart awake and sing to Christ, the everlasting King."
