The recording I’m about to share with you has been doing the rounds on the interwebs for a number of years, so there’s a good chance you may have heard it before. If not, you’re in for a rare treat.

The story goes that it was recorded at the end of a day-long pre-Christmas recording session at a church. After a hard day’s work, everyone had packed up and gone home – everyone, that is, except a couple of humble sound technicians.

Maybe it was tiredness or seasonal mirth – who knows? – but for whatever reason, one of them decided to play a backing track and record the other one singing along to it in a mock-epic performance of this beautiful Christmas song. Little did they know that the fruit of their work would go down in internet history.

Enjoy. And make sure you’re not eating or drinking as you listen.
