Annie Lennox, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

Some Christmas songs can be super saccharine, and some musical artist have no business remaking them (Mariah Carey, I’m talking to you!). But Annie Lennox is releasing ‘A Christmas Cornucopia” this week, and she tackles some traditional carols in her own style. It works. It’s not saccharine, but it’s beautiful. And it veers, in Annie’s own way, towards vintage. The first song and video I’m sharing here, and you’ll understand the vintage reference; it’s Victorian inspired. Enjoy. And love it.
Thanks Tom and Lorenzo!
