Favorite Christmas Hymn? Updated

Update: More from Sissel and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir can be found here, thanks to reader, Stenar. I always have an ear to the music world and I am surprised I missed a heavenly voiced angel like this.

Mine is "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman", I have a very strong bend towards the classical like Handel's "Messiah". I have to find this Swedish( correction: a reader points out she is Norwegian) gal I just saw on PBS with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir unreal voice, crystal clear without waver, Julie Andrews comes to mind, Sissel Kyrkjebo was the name I heard, a voice you can listen to and not know the language, pure music.

Bingo, video.



or here for a better listen of this talent. My ears are in love.

For my senses, for this kind of stuff, you just can't beat Celtic Woman...

Sissel is amazing, but she's Norwegian, not Swedish.

Welcome Stenar and correction noted and made.

Sissel also sings your favorite "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" on her new album "Northern Lights."

You can find the album (with music samples) here:

By the way, I should have said this earlier. Sissel doesn't actually sing on that first song you have linked to on your video, "Lux aurumque." That is just the MoTabs singing on their own. Sissel hums the first 4 or 5 notes and then walks off stage.
