I'll go for We Three Kings, Silent Night and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen at the moment, they're the only ones I can play!

I think the one Dave's on about is a John Rutter carol...
I LOOOOOVE the Boar's Head Carol (which is never heard because it's in latin and Labour are going to make Latin illegal), and Gabriel's Message. Anyone who likes carols ought to get Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band CDs....magic.

Maddy Prior has an exquisite bell-like voice...her CDs with the Carnival Band ARE Christmas, as far as I'm concerned. As I decorate the tree I either put that CD on OR the DVD of A Christmas Carol with Alastair Sim as Scrooge. Bliss...

Davebrum, I'm not a West Brom fan. I don't do football - unless it were England playing in the World Cup final.

'Astle is King' was a piece of graffiti I spotted on a bridge a few years ago as I was busy getting lost in the Black Country - Halesudleystonhall way.

I agree, but the piano would probably get damaged with all those kids running about, and as for the water damage, it makes more sense to stick to the designated shower block.

Comparing thingummydoodles wouldn't be a problem though, unless the music teacher caught you.

All I Want For Christmas is You. More so after watching the little girl sing it on "Love Actually." :-)

Christmas Eve and Christmas day I have 4 organ-playing gigs and I ALWAYS play The Boar's Head Carol and Gaudete at every last one of 'em, despite The Boar's Head being a secular carol - everyone loves it, but nobody KNOWS it. I've got the words if you want 'em, Dave!
I play for my own amazement... :piano;

Groan.... :roll: :D Send me your address, Dave. It's all right, I'm not going to beat you up for the bad joke...
