My favorite Christmas carol (by far) is I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
I've been partial to Bryan Duncan's (Christmas is Jesus) since we first purchased it way back in the olden days. The first song on the album is I Heard the Bells sung to a rarely heard tune, which I LOVE! And then Bryan weaves IHTB in with Angels We Have Heard On High in the second song. Unbelieveable!! Chill-producing! You can listen to it here if you live in the US.
This year I have discovered two more IHTBs that I might possibly prefer. The jury is still out. I can tell you one thing...I might be driving my family CRAZY by the number of times I select these particular songs.
1. Casting Crowns. WOW!!! is all I can say!
2. Pedro the lion. I couldn't find a link for you, but it's #24 over there on my playlist. Over there...on the right sidebar.
The story behind IHTB is really touching and powerful. If you don't know it, you can read it here.
