24 December: The Swingle Singers: Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht

Published December 24, 2012

And so we reach December 24 and the final post of the 2012 Advent Calendar. I've chosen to finish off with an appropriately somber recording: the wonderful Swingle Singers and their version of 'Silent Night'. The track appears on their 1968 album Christmastime (aka Noëls Sans Passeport), and although it features very little of their trademark ba-da-ba-da vocal stylings, it's still vintage Swingle.

Thank you to everyone who has followed the Advent Calendar blog this year. It might just possibly return in 2013...

Merry Christmas!
