Christmas Music: Annie Lennox “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”

Annie Lennox delivers her modern spin on “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” while bringing the drama and tradition of the classic holiday tune.

Slant Magazine wrote in 2010, “With its mix of choral arrangements and what sounds to these ears a heck of lot like Auto-Tune, ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ marries the traditional with the modern in a daring and ultimately very successful way. Lennox’s commitment to the material is palpable.”

From her  stunning holiday release, A Christmas Cornucopia.

I’ve long admired just about everything about Lennox. Her fearless commitment to creativity always inspires.

A 10th anniversary edition of the holiday CD was released in 2020. You can find it on Amazon here.
