On Friday, Dec. 19, at 3 p.m., join us for Carol with Classical MPR, a new special featuring beloved carols. It culminates with a special live broadcast at 4 p.m., featuring The Singers vocal ensemble.
Led by Matthew Culloton, The Singers will perform 15 carols during the hour, and you're invited to sing along with your radio. Wherever you are at home, at work (if you can get away with it), in your car, at a party we invite all listeners to Carol with Classical MPR. We'll even provide lyrics so you can sing along word for word.
Download and print this PDF to view songsheets for these carols:
Angels We Have Heard on High
Ding Dong! Merrily on High
God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
The Holly and the Ivy
In the Bleak Midwinter
Joy to the World
Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming
O Come, All Ye Faithful
Still, Still, Still
What Child Is This?
During the program, the songs will be performed in countdown order, based on your recent votes. Be sure to sing along! Tweet along, too, and we'll embed some of your posts right here: use the hashtag #CarolwithClassicalMPR.
