I had finished posting here a day or two ago, and wondered about the origins of Christmas Carols. So I looked up a number of them, from "Silent Night/Stille Nacht" to "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing." The biggest surprise I got was when I looked up "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and found out about it's Cold War origins. Imagine that, a song composed during The Cuban Missile Crisis as a plea for Peace On Earth. I'll never look down on this song again, as  "child simple/treacly overplayed" Christmas mall Muzak ever again. Dona Nobis Pacem.

The original choral version sounds best.
