Listen to this, and need I say more as to why this is one of my favourites of all time?

Gaudete is one of the rare treasures that haven't been brought up very much except, recently, by Erasure, who are doing a version of this carol. I've noticed that this song, and a few others (In Dulce Jubilo and Ave Maria de Montserrat) are the few hymns which work best with voice and percussion.

It's Christmas Eve at the time of uploading, and later today, I will be singing (and drumming) this -- I am very much looking forward to it. <3

The full lyrics and translation can be found here:

All vocals, as well as the bodhrán playing, were done by yours truly.

Troisnyx responds:

And a blessed one to you as well. I love you.

Impressive! Don't know how this passed over my "radar".

Troisnyx responds:

Eeee, cheers. ^_^ I hope to do a much better quality one in future, now that I've got a few more drums in my arsenal.

I absolutely love this.

This is one of my favorite songs and the way you have performed this has led me to believe you must be hiding a choir somewhere. I could not tell that you were the sole voice performing all of the parts.

Thank you for sharing!

Troisnyx responds:

Anytime, I'm glad you loved it!

(Vocal layering isn't new, but I started using it after realising that a number of artists I enjoy listening to -- Enya, Akiko Shikata, Erutan -- use the technique.)

Great rendition! My sister had to sing this in her major Chorus endeavors and I've had to hear it over and over in the house ;). It really is a wonderful song.

Troisnyx responds:

Tell me about it, it seems that Gaudete is the Christmas carol of the year, what with the amount of times I've heard it and sung it..... XD

*happy sigh* Glad you liked this rendition. I did my best -- I've had a regret or two about this thing, but oh well.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere it gives very good !

Troisnyx responds:

Eh, thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. : )
