O Come, Little Children (2017)

This CD with the music from the 2016 Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas concert celebrates Christmas through the eyes of a child. The engaging wisdom of innocence captures our imagination through favorite songs and carols from around the world. From the 18th-century German carol “O Come, Little Children” to the French song “Il est Né” and the traditional Andalusian song “Campana Sobre Campana,” the invitation is extended to everyone to join with children in reflecting on the Christmas message. The music allows us to become children once again and partake of a joyous celebration of not only the birth of the Savior Jesus Christ, but the love of family and all mankind. The CD includes a moving rendition of Hans Christian Andersen’s fabled story, “The Little Match Girl,” narrated by Rolando Villazón. With a backdrop of original music by Mack Wilberg, it reminds us that having the faith of a child and showing unremitting love will lift all who look heavenward for comfort and relief, no matter their circumstances.
