Listen at Christmas: Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Gather ’round–it’s story time!

Here’s a short video, with soundtrack* by the MoTab. You might not immediately see where the story is going, but keep your eyes peeled–everything comes together by the end. I think the question that the choir poses, “What shall we give?” is exactly the right one to be asking. Here’s hoping that we can keep from getting confused about what sorts of gifts are the most important.


 

What shall we give?

 

 

*I found liner notes that give the source of the song as a Catalonian carol, arranged by Mack Wilberg, with an English paraphrase by David Warner. David happens to be an old friend; if I can track him down, maybe I can get more details. The manuscript is listed as “unpublished.” You can download the song for free here.
