gaudete, christus est natus! (international christmas songs, part 1)

[posted: ]  [0 comments]

about 15 years ago, my dad signed me up for the innsbrucker capellknaben boys’ choir, and i quickly grew fond of singing.
in 1996, we went on a concert tour to athens, greece with the choir, and we in our repertoire was classical as well as traditional austrian music, but also some international christmas songs and carols.

i’m not sure what prompted me, but i’ve recently been looking up these christmas songs, and have been trying to find recordings/videos.
over the next few days, i’m going to post the ones that i was able to find.
