Veni redemptor gentium - Vocalis Chamber Choir

This is the oldest Christmas Carol that we know of, written by Bishop Ambrose of Milan sometime before 400 A.D.  The title translates as Come, Redeemer of the nations.  If you don't like the typical Christmas carols, give this a try.  It's as peaceful as a silent winter night.

That was beautiful.

Like a Gregorian chant, I always put a disk of chant in with my Christmas Carol mix.

Soothing and meaningful if you remember a little of your Latin.

Very nice.
