For this festive 2010 season, I present this Christmas video to the YouTube community and all my friends. Hopefully, through the music and images, the deeper meaning of the Christmas Spirit can be found despite the hectic nature of the season. I sincerely trust that you enjoy this video.

Part of the real excitement in this video for me is the way the images tell the story of the truly beautiful words. I hope you enjoy the message this video has to offer as much as the music sung by the world-renowned Cambridge Singers.

What sweeter music can we bring
Than a carol, for to sing
The birth of this our Heavenly King?
Awake the voice! Awake the string!
Dark and dull night, fly hence away,
And give the honor to this day,
That sees December turned to May...
That sees December turned to May.

Why does the chilling winter's morn
Smile like a field beset with corn?
Or smell like a meadow newly-shorn,
Thus on the sudden? Come and see
The cause why things thus fragrant be:
'Tis He is born, whose quickening birth
Gives life and lustre public mirth
To heaven and the under-earth.

We see Him come, and know Him ours,
Who, with His sunshine and His showers,
Turns all the patient ground to flowers...
Turns all the patient ground to flowers!
The Darling of the world is come,
And fit it is we find a room
To welcome Him. To welcome Him the nobler part
Of all the house here, is the Heart.

Which we will give Him; and bequeath
This holly, and this ivy wreath,
To do Him honor; who's our King,
And Lord of all this revelling.

What sweeter music can we bring,
Than a carol, for to sing
The birth of this our Heavenly King
The birth of this our Heavenly King?
