    Cantique de Nol, Minuit, Chrtiens, O helga natt

    Cantique de Nol or apparently more common Minuit, Chrtiens, to Scandinavians known as O helga natt or Adams julsng. Music written by Adolphe Adam 1847 with a text by Placide Cappeau. A French Christian Christmas song which is the absolute necessary finale on every Swedish Christmas concert and traditional Christmas school ceremony. A song when done properly will make your chest cramp, your eyes water and breath erratic, especially when experienced live.

    For Swedes the real one with tenor Jussi Bjrling from 1959, one of his last recordings.

    The song should be strong and building up to a crescendo at the high notes in the end.
    "Adams julsng" should be pronounced with a French Adam + s and then julsng as usual Swedish
