Did anyone watch the Christmas carol program on KQED-HD just now?

Did you catch that arrangement of The First Nowell?  That was definitely the most beautiful rendition of the song I have ever heard in my entire life.  Mind you, the melody of The First Nowell is so repetitive and monotonous it can quickly become boring when mis-arranged.  Gotta look up who arranged the piece….  I wonder if there's a list of songs that played in the program on the PBS website.

Anyways, Merry Christmas everyone!  ^^//

You should've heard what they had on around midnight ET on WCBS. It was an interfaith service from South Dakota, and the music was totally astounding. Spoken word, performance, choral arrangement, quartet 4-part accapella harmony, solo work, orchestra pieces... just stunning.
*sigh* Times like this, I wish broadcast stations here replayed the program over the web like they do in Korea.  _-_
Just so you know, it's "Noël" -- evidently, that's what it gets called in French. :)
That's what I thought too, when I saw Nowell on the screen.  Apparently both spellings are accepted: http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_First_Nowell
