12 Songs of Christmas, Day 12

Finishing up my little tour of Christmas music with one of my favorite carols: "Do You Hear What I Hear?"

"Do You Hear What I Hear?" was originally recorded by the Harry Simeone Chorale for their 1962 album The Wonderful Songs of Christmas. It was written by Noël Regney & Gloria Shayne as a call for peace during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It has been recorded by hundreds of artists in the years since, and this version—performed here in a concert settingby Broadway star Linda Eder is probably my favorite version.

Thanks for joining me these past twelve days—I've hope you've enjoyed the yuletide musical journey!
