Oh, thankyou for that. A perfect herald for the season.

That really was very beautiful. Thankyou. I found a latin to English conversion site but the download was 6.1mb so perhaps you could just tell me what the word Gaudete means and I'll guess the rest.

Helen - if you click on the "traditional carol" link on the posting you can see the whole history of the song and its translation (this, in fact, is the first time in 30 years of hearing it, that I have actually looked up the full English version!)
Gaudete = Rejoice!

Happy Christmas to you and all your family.

I've enjoyed my visit .... followed the Steeleye Span link - I've heard of them certainly, but haven't followed their music and/or history at all. Loved the carol. Thanks for dropping by my blog.
