The longest night, awaiting light, we deck green boughs, winterberry and pine. Some wait for the birth of a son. Some wait for return of the sun. And though winter’s darkness may leave us moody, the gods are still with us.
‘Veni Veni Emmanuel’ is a 12th century ballad. The Latin lyrics are based on the bible prophecy of the birth of Christ from the book of Isaiah. Performed here by the (fabulous!) Mediaeval Baebes. Hope you like it! Happy Winter Solstice.
