From Phil Moore’s 2020 album Home for Christmas: Carols for a very different Christmas
A contemporary blend of piano chords and drums gives this carol a funky twist, while preserving the well-loved lyrics and tune. The harmony of male and female vocals creates the perfect lyric video for an online carol service or listening to in-person.
