Okay, maybe this will be the last version of O Come, O Come Emmuanuel for this year.
Maybe.
Linda Ronstadt provides today’s rendition.

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel – Christmas Songs 2017 Day 7

Okay, it looks like another couple of days (at least) of O Come, O Come Emmuanuel.
This one’s by a duo who record under the name Kaliyo.

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel – Christmas Songs 2017 Day 6

I’ve decided to post another version of O Come, O Come Emmuanuel (just like yesterday).
I could pretty much just post versions all month, but probably not.
We’ll see.

This one’s by The Franz Family.

O Come, O Come Emmanuel – Christmas Songs 2017 Day 5

O Come, O Come Emmanuel is worth posting every year.
Particularly when there are so many amazing recordings of the song around.
This is by someone called Citizen Shade.
It’s pretty special, even if it’s not all the verses.

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel – Sunday (Advent) Songs

I don’t know if I’ve ever reposted a Sunday Song, but to mark the beginning of Advent O Come, O Come Emmanuel, one of my favourite hymns, is featuring again.
I’ve posted it many times over the years in my Christmas music posts.
It’ll be back again next year.
This version by Pentatonix is wonderful, though truncated.

O Come, O Come Emmanuel – Christmas Songs 2014 Day 2

So, if Behold The Lamb Of God is always the first choice for this series each year, O Come, O Come Emmanuel pretty much locks in at second.
I love singing this song.
Here’s a rendition from the group Selah, with lyrics included.
