Blogmas Day 3: Multicultural Christmas Songs

Good evening and unto Day 3 of Blogmas. I’ll just be doing 12 days due to my work schedule. Maybe if I’m feeling ambitious by the end of the twelve days and I have the time, I may extend it.

For many years I have sung in choirs. So many rehearsals and so many performances. I still remember singing a song about drug awareness with my peers in elementary school. One of the things I loved about choirs throughout grade school and college was singing in languages besides my native tongue. These languages include French, Spanish, Czech, German, Hawaiian, Swahili, Kenyan, Nigerian, and my favorite- Latin. today I’m going to share a couple of those songs with you, all of which are Christmas pieces. I don’t own any of these clips I’m about to share. I’m just copying and pasting the links from YouTube. Hopefully they play.

Gloria Festiva (Latin)

Wana Baraka- Shawn L. Kirchner (Kenyan)

Personet Hodie (Latin)

Ave Maria- Jacques Arcadelt (Latin)

Betelehemu- Olatunji and Wendell P. Whalum, arr. by Barrington Brooks (Nigerian)

By David Harris

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
