O little town of Bethlehem, just because I love the harmony
I'm so tempted to go out and busk in four part harmony this year; no-one ever does it any more and it's fun! Just gotta find the other three parts though
Ooh and epiphany carol to die for: the Three Kings by Peter Cornelius. Mmmmm...
I'll do alto! The harmony for O Little Town is so much ingrained in me now that I actually start singing it automatically without realising I'm not singing the tune!
I've got to go for O Come, All Ye Faithful though, purely for the "Sing, Choirs of Angels" descant.
Every year in school the alto section (those of us who could) would sing the descants just for Christmas, and I loved it! Destroyed my voice, but hitting that top A in Hark the Herald Angels, as I was leading the choir out of chapel, was a magical moment. Sing, Choirs of Angels though, just sums up the Christmas feeling for me, it's not Christmas if I don't sing that at least once, even if it is slightly inappropriately
I like Three Kings as well (the Cornelius one, not We Three Kings) especially if there's a good soloist *swoon.* And In the Bleak Midwinter, all lovely. Ooooh, I feel all musicky and Christmassy now!
