    Its Gaudete Sunday and part of the tradition of KTCC is the arrival of the wonderful Maddy Prior and Steeleye Span on the third Sunday of Advent.

    Father Jerry addressed the very difficult issues of our times as we welcomed the illumination for the day. He also told us that we would remain with the Chapel for another three years – Rejoice, yes the congregation did. We have a very special Shepherd.

    I look forward to this day, I look forward to this posting, I dont really know how long I have been part of the KTCC community but i like it very much and its part of my day. Gaudete was a Christmas single in the early 70s, and enjoyed each year

      My Dear Hedley,
      It is one of my favorite traditions here at KTCC.

      We are happy that you are a member of this community. I look forward each day to your comments, and I missed you last summer when you went to the Olympics. I knew a piece of us was missing.

      I have lit the two Christmas trees and the small pinecone one on the table, the pepper strand in the kitchen and the scallop lights. I have driven away the darkness.

        Our trees are lit, I talked to the Prince’s Mum and am waiting for my Lions. Slowly a little light

        Thank you for letting me participate, tolerating my indulgences, and my Lenniephobia. It’s a great group and I am appreciative

    Beautiful song and tradition!
    It’s midnight, I’m quite tired after another chorus concert, but I had to listen to this song today online. It’s not the same if I just listen to my computer files. I guess I’m still a freshman in the KTCC community with only 3 Coffee-Gaudete-Sundays (found your blog in Jan. 2010) but I’m already looking forward to Gaudete 2013. And the time in between ๐Ÿ™‚

      Nope, you’re a full fledged member!

      KTCC has a traditional song for every holiday, but this one is my favorite followed by Alice’s Restaurant. Are there two more diverse holiday songs?

      This is so very beautiful, and I always listen a few times, am listening again now as I write.

    • Hedley Says:

      Can you share some of your Christmas concert with us ? It would be very nice.
      Gaudete Sunday is special

        Hedley and whoever is interested in chorus Christmas music,
        I still have hope that a video appears on YouTube (our Musical Director has to decide that), but if you are interested, I’ve uploaded some unofficial audios. Just in case. Unavoidable Lennie song included ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Hope this link works, nevertheless I’ll take it down in a few days to avoid problems.

  3. Kat Says:

    The link worked perfectly. I’m listening to God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen now. It is beautiful.

    I’m a Lennie fan so you don’t need to defend your choice to me. Besides, that is a magnificent choice!

    • Hedley Says:

      No luck from my iPad but I will try again tomorrow from my office. Looking forward to it.

      All Lennie should be avoidable ๐Ÿ™‚

    He does the background music!!!

  5. Kat Says:

    The Vocal Majority Chorus has made that song so beautiful!!

  6. Hedley Says:

    It is awfully good, thank you so much for sharing. It totally merits a Birgit Christmas Festival at KTCC.

    • Birgit Says:

      Hedley, thanks for the compliment.
      It seems that both Hallelujahs will go to YouTube. If I post the links in a comment, it’s definitely enough Birgit Christmas Festival at KTCC.

      • Kat Says:

        Not enough says I as already I had planned to post it and also a song from im6’s compilation-sort of a family day here at KTCC.

  7. Hedley Says:

    Oh, and I do like the real Hallelujah much better than the Lennie adaptation.
