We are coming up to the time of year when we have our Carol Service, Nativity etc. I love this time of year and singing the great carols. I am in the midst of sorting out the Carols that we will be singing over Christmas and I wondered if you have any favourites that you would like me to put into one of the Christmas services? Also give me your reason why you like it. Deadline is this Sunday (5th December)!
My opener for 10 is the Angel Gabriel. It reminds me of Midnight Communion in my village church when I was a teenager. The late night, the packed church and singing the great carols. So, it is the carol that HAS to go into a service somewhere.

Great version from Sting of all people:
