23 December: The New Christy Minstrels: Do You Hear What I Hear?

Published December 23, 2016

As the Advent Calendar nears its end, I thought we should take a listen to The New Christy Minstrels' version of 'Do You Hear What I Hear?' from their 1966 album Christmas With The Christies. This song is usually delivered quite slowly and solemnly, at least in the versions I've heard, but this folked-up interpretation is quite refreshing. I'm sure it went down a storm at US colleges at the time. And hey, with an album cover like that, how could you possibly go wrong?
