    Gregorian chant and medieval carols? Yes, please.

    'Well, what are you?" said the Pigeon. "I can see you're trying to invent something!" "I-I'm a little girl," said Alice, rather doubtfully. She found herself at last in a beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains.

    Bing Crosby singing White Christmas.

    No one else can sing this song as well as he. 1942 version featured in Holiday Inn. Academy award winner for best original song.

    He sings this song so well there should be a law preventing anyone else from performing it. No one else can do this song justice.

    What about Elvis Presley's version from 1957?

    I wholeheartedly concur:

    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    (It doesn't matter how old the song is, I won't stop liking it).

    The song Silent Night


    Silent Night


    "Silent Night" (German: "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht") is a popular Christmas carol, composed in 1818 by
    Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr in the small town of Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria. It was declared an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2011. The song has been recorded by many singers across many music genres. The version sung by Bing Crosby in 1935 has sold 10 million copies as a single.


    The first edition was published by Friese [de] in 1833 in a collection of Four Genuine Tyrolean Songs, with the following musical text:

    Franz Xaver Gruber, painted by Sebastian Stief (1846)


    d16 b8 | c4. (e4) r8 | c8. [g16] e8 g8. f16 d8 | c4.~ c4 r8 \bar "|."}" style="border: 0px; vertical-align: middle; cursor: pointer;">
    The contemporary version, as in the choral example below, is:
    [d16] b8 | c4. (e4) r8 | c8. [(g16)] e8 g8. [f16] d8 | c4.~ c4 r8 \bar "|."}" style="border: 0px; vertical-align: middle; cursor: pointer;">


    Lyrics

    German lyrics Young's English lyrics
    Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
    Alles schläft; einsam wacht
    Nur das traute hochheilige Paar.
    Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar,
    Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!
    Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!

    Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
    Hirten erst kundgemacht
    Durch der Engel Halleluja,
    Tönt es laut von fern und nah:
    Christ, der Retter ist da!
    Christ, der Retter ist da!

    Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
    Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht
    Lieb' aus deinem göttlichen Mund,
    Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund'.
    Christ, in deiner Geburt!
    Christ, in deiner Geburt!
    Silent night! Holy night!
    All is calm, all is bright
    Round yon virgin mother and child!
    Holy infant, so tender and mild,
    Sleep in heavenly peace!
    Sleep in heavenly peace!

    Silent night! Holy night!
    Shepherds quake at the sight!
    Glories stream from heaven afar,
    Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
    Christ the Saviour is born!
    Christ the Saviour is born!

    Silent night! Holy night!
    Son of God, love's pure light
    Radiant beams from thy holy face
    With the dawn of redeeming grace,
    Jesus, Lord, at thy birth!
    Jesus, Lord, at thy birth!



    Translations


    In 1859, the Episcopalpriest John Freeman Young, then serving at Trinity Church, New York City, wrote and published the English translation that is most frequently sung today, translated from three of Mohr's original six verses.[9] The version of the melody that is generally used today is a slow, meditativelullaby or pastorale, differing slightly (particularly in the final strain) from Gruber's original, which was a "moderato" tune in

    time and siciliana rhythm. Today, the lyrics and melody are in the public domain, although newer translations usually are not.


    In 1998 the Silent Night Museum in Salzburg commissioned a new English translation by Bettina Klein of Mohr's German lyrics. Whenever possible, (and mostly), Klein leaves the Young translation unchanged, but occasionally Klein (and Mohr) varies markedly. For example, Nur das traute hochheilige Paar, Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar is translated by Young: "Round yon Virgin mother and child, Holy infant so tender and mild" whereas Klein rewords it: "Round yon godly tender pair, Holy infant with curly hair", a translation closer to the original.



    The carol has been translated into about 140 languages.

    The song Silent Night gets my vote.
