Favorite song from AIC?

I would have to say Joy To The World because I love its upbeat melody and the usage of pipes. :)

Hmmm... I think there's a choice missing that says "Every Single One!" :lol: :lol: :lol: . That's what I would pick :D. They're all so wonderful it's simply impossible to choose..... It's a wonderful Christmas CD, Moya did such an awesome job of picking out the best songs. :D

For me it's quite tough between Gabriel's Message and Oíche Chiúin, but voted for the latter just because of Moya's children as they sing so gorgeously with Moya!

I've voted for 'carol of the bells'! what a great song! I especially love when Moya sings 'merry merry merry merry Christmas'... It's a wonderful song to open an album like AIC! :P

My favourite is "God rest ye' merry gentlemen", but all the other songs are wonderful as well. The more often I listen to this album, the better I like it. Even songs that sounded strange to me at first do now belong to my favourite Christmas songs.

That is a dreadful choice! I'm listening to the album for the last time for this year now :wink:

I love 'Deck the Halls', it's light, fun and beautifully arranged. I also like the arrangement for 'God rest ye merry gentlemen' and various others.....I think 'What child is this' from the US release is beautiful as well.....nope, can't choose a favourite there :lol:

Am I the only one who loves Gabriel's message?? Oh dear. Well, I'm probably bias as I love singing it in our school carol service every year, but i love moya's version too.

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

I know! Your fav number is 6! Isn't it?

6 is the number of Black Night on Signature (your fav song on this album) and also the number of Gabriel's Message here on AIC! :D
