    There's hardly a carol that I dislike, but my favourites are the folk carols.

    I too love 'Tomorrow will be my dancing day'; also the Sussex Carol (On Christmas night all Christians sing); The Moon Shines Bright; This is the Truth sent from Above; and Come All Ye Worthy Christian Men. I like the French folk carols 'Guillot, take your tambourine' & one about Christ as a wandering beggar the tune of which is now a eucharistic hymn, 'Let all mortal flesh keep silence'.

    I also like Sabine Baring-Gould's 'Most highly favoured lady', which of course we always changed at school into 'highly flavoured'! But the words are lovely.

    Oh, I could go on and on...
    Great thread!

    Whichever Christmas Carol Luciano Pavarotti is singing at the moment. Miss him!

    Silent Night is still the classic for me.
    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    "Life's a long song, but the tune ends too soon for us all." Ian Anderson lyric

    "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." Hamlet

    Two out and out favourites.

    Tchaikovsky - Crown of Roses (does it count as a carol)

    Holst - In the Bleak Midwinter
    “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

    Here's John Rutter's setting of God Be In My Head. Rutter's done lots of good Christmas music. I don't think I'd call them carols, but good nonetheless.

    Two I know from The Lutheran Hymnal, Concordia Publishing House, 1941:
    A Great And Mighty Wonder (#76)
    From Heaven Above to Earth I Come (#85)
    “Then he will also say to those on the left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels!'" Matthew 25:41 (Christian Standard Bible)

    "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" (though I guess it's more an Advent than a Christmas song), "We Three Kings," "I Saw Three Ships," "Coventry Carol," and the one that goes, "And God bless you and send you a happy New Year" (sorry, I don't know the title) are my favorites. To be honest, I find many Christmas carols a little annoying. "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is my all-time least favorite, and I only really like "Silent Night" in its original German.
