A Collection of Carols


Alison Kraus and YoYo Ma perform "The Wexford Carol."



This is the English translation of a Gaelic Carol from the Outer Hebrides Islands titled "Taladh Chriasda."  Sung by Sheena Wellington by Narada on the CD Celtic Spirit.



Gloucestershire Wassail, an ancient carol,  on the Hurdy Gurdy



Loreena McKennett singing The Coventry Carol



Anuna singing Noel Nouvelet



A Medieval Carol, "Gaudete"  ("Rejoice, Rejoice! Christ is born of the virgin Mary, Rejoice!")



Celtic Woman singing "O Don Oiche Ud I Mbeithil" (One Night in Bethlehem)





And from the sublime, we go straight on through to the ridiculous.

  1. The animals singing carols were really funny - and the music of the Gaelic carol is beautiful.
