which of these would you rather hear a female sing on Christmas Eve at Church (after Communion in the Catholic Church)? Or write in alternative suggestions if you wish.

TIA!

    I was torn between "Go Tell It on the Mountain" and "O Holy Night."

    I voted for "O Holy Night," but I love them both. We do "Go Tell..." at the end of the Christmas Pageant, so it's actually sung before Mass.

    I also like Adestes Fideles and O Come Emmanuel. But you didn't ask about them.

    Hey, that's why I asked people to write in suggestions! There are too many beautiful Christmas songs to list them all! Adeste Fideles is actually half of the song Gesu Bambino, which I agre is absolutely gorgeous. And O Come Emmanuel is more for Advent than Christmas I think, because He has come by then, so I didn't include it for that reason.

    Do you prefer Adeste Fideles in Latin or as "O come all ye faithful?"

    Hmm, that's a tough one. Since it is presumably a solo? And not one the entire congregation is singing, Latin. It is beautiful in Latin. If you are going to invite the congregation to join you, you might sing the last chorus in English and specifically invite them. I love that.

    I voted for O Little Town of Bethleham because I just love that song. Three years ago I sang O Holy Night and Two Years Ago, I sang Little Town. It's got to be my all time favorite. Err, but I don't go to Mass; I'm protestant. I hope I haven't screwed up your poll. :oops:

    Merry Christmas!

    I like "Go Tell it On the Mountain" sung by a choir.

    For a soloist, "O Holy Night" would be the most moving song, for me.

    I'm getting verklempt just thinking about it.

    I'm going to Midnight Mass at my family's church in my home town.
    There will be a gospel choir and I know I'll cry if they sing "O Holy Night"! :oops:

    "Lo! How a Rose e'er Blooming" is beautiful. It's so obscure, I haven't heard it in about 3 years.

    Hmm, so far this answers my question (no, people are not sick of hearing O Holy Night!)

    I don't go to Church, but I think that 'Silent Night' is a really lovely song.

    O Holy Night but only if the French version is sung as well (brings back memories of going to Mass at Christmas & singing in the Christmas pagent)

    O Holy Night is one of my favorite songs, and I think that it would be perfect to sing at the end of a Christmas Eve Mass.

    Minuit, Chretien - I LOVE that version. I was thinking of throwing in a verse of it....

    That is a really pretty version.

    For those that have never heard it before, you can listen to it at this link...

    I found it online a while ago, but i'm not sure if that's the best one to listen to or not. :)

    I see that O Holy night is a favourite. :roll: I am sick to death of hearing it though - it sounds rather cheezy, it has been so overdone. Like Ave Maria at weddings....

    If it had to be sung though, I think it is more suited to a male voice.
    For females (are you a soprano Amneris?) or boy soprano, I like a clear non-vibrato voice at Christmas singing O little town of Bethlehem or Once in Royal Davids city. Sends chills down my spine!

    Did anyone ask? How did it go? What did you sing?

    This year at my church they sang some really weak song I'd never heard before after the pageant. It kinda sucked, with the whole choir & congregation there, they really needed the power of "Go Tell It On the Mountain!"

    I did O Holy Night after communion and Go Tell it on the Mountain at the end of Mass. I haven't sung in my church in a long time and it was great. I did one verse of O Holy Night in French and the rest in English. When I got to the "chains shall He break" part, I was very emotional because the words meant so much to me and the church was so beautiful in the candlelight and everything. I almost cried! Other people did too. Go Tell It was energetic and fun and ushered in Christmas. Thanks for asking!

    It sounds beautiful! I love it when songs make me cry, although it seems like these days I'll cry over anything.

    O Holy Night. When my husband was in a band, the girl singer was trained in opera. She came over my house to record a Xmas tape. She sang "O Holy Night". It was so powerful. I was sitting in my living room and I though Jesus Christ was going to come through my window right then and there.
