2017년 크리스마스 앨범은 독특한 방식의 곡 전개를 보여 주고 있습니다. 1920년대부터 2010년대까지 100년 간의 음악 스타일을 노래 순서에 적용했다는 것인데요, 어떤 변화를 주고 있는 지 한 곡, 한 곡 들어 보시면서 비교해 보시는 것도 재미있네요 :)



The First Noel, the Angels did say Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay ; In fields where they lay keeping their sheep On a cold winter's night that was so deep.


Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel!


They looked up and saw a star Shining in the East beyond them far And to the earth it gave great light And so it continued both day and night.


Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel!


Noel? I was just five years old the first time I sang it. Me and momma walking to candlelight service in the snow. I'll never forget the choir in that old church.  Sounded like heaven (You're the first, You're the last) ; So let us all in one accord sing praises to our heavenly Lord (Noel, You're the reason we sing)


Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel! ; Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel! ...
