O Come, O Come, Emmanuel: Tune and Lyrics Traditional; Performance, Not So Much

"O Come, O Come, Emmanuel (traditional Christmas song) - Mike Masse and Wendy Jernigan"

mikemassedotcom, YouTube (December 6, 2009)

"Merry Christmas! This song was performed and arranged by Mike Massé and Wendy Jernigan in December, 2001. Scott Slusher provided additional percussion arranging. Video assembled/edited by Mike Massé on 12/05/09."

Traditional this song is - in terms of lyrics and tune.

However, I could not recommend this video to anyone who believes that no proper Christmas music uses technology invented after 1955, or is even remotely uptempo.

As for the rest of us, I think this is a fine bit of seasonal music. The video part of this recording is series of zoomed stills, including some of the top-rate art involving Christian themes of the last several centuries - in my opinion.
