What is your favorite holiday carol or song?


"Still, Still, Still" is my favorite carol (it's actually kind of pretty in German), but for pop songs I like the not-so-well-known standard "You're All I Want For Christmas" (although lately I can't get "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah out of my head, 'cause I'm just that ghey).

But I'm bah humbugging this year anyway, so whatevs.

You are so wrong! "Es ist ein ros entsprungen" is the best carol, no, make that the greatest piece of music ever! And it's like, totally medieval!

I've performed it many times, but I find it too... choppy? I mean, it's nice, but it doesn't win for me. I find "Still, Still, Still" has a lovely melody line that just kind of flows for me, as both a listener and a singer.

I will admit that Still, Still, Still has a better melody line. What I like about Es ist ein Ros is the way the every single vocal part contributes to the whole equally and the sense of vast movement from the parts moving slowly, ponderously, yet gracefully in different directions.

True, true. I do love a lot of music from that period for that very reason.
