Christmas carols: Infant holy
"Infant holy, infant lowly" is the English version of the traditional Polish carol "W żłobie leży." (If you can pronounce that, you're more talented than I am; I had enough trouble just finding the proper diacritics.)
This traditional carol first appeared in English in 1921. In the spirit of improving your music snobbery, I must inform you that the final notes are generally sung wrong in English. Due to an early misprint, the last three notes are often sung F-D-C (where the song is in the key of C), but they should actually be sung E-D-C. (It's a shame, because that quirky cadence is actually one of the things I like best about the song.)
Here's the original Polish version (with the words, so you can sing along!):
And here are two English versions:

This is a very nice rendition but the setup of the "Singing Christmas Tree" is more than a little quirky. It's kind of like "Hollywood Squares" meets Christmas.
This is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing beautiful arrangement by Mack Wilberg. I can't embed it because of copyright reasons, but do click on it if you get a chance.
