Here's my bit for the First Nowell chorus --

I attempted a bit of harmony on the refrain. If it doesn't end up harmonizing well when you make the mix, you can just leave me out of the refrains.

I just wanted to check in and let all our singers so far know that the song is sounding good! :clap:

Hoping for a few more folks in the next 30 days!

Here is my contribution (finally!):

I stumbled a little bit at 1:28 but hopefully it's passable. Sorry I took so long... I've been busy :?

God bless,
Rachel

Thank you so much! :clap:

About the 1:28 part -- I am KICKING myself for singing the singalong version like "o-of tha-at same star..." instead of "of that sa-a-ame star...", which is probably how it's supposed to go. But I think it's too late to change the singalong file now.

I wouldn't like to see you kicking yourself! My church choir sings this line with two slurred notes per word for "of" and "that", then a single note for "same", ending on "star" for the only the single final note of the line, just as you did in your singalong version.

Hello!
This is my contribution. I haven't actually ever heard this song before, so some words may sound a bit weird. Sorry about that!

Yes, I did! It was super nice. I'm now singing it all over the house and my little brother is just looking at me weirdly. :wink:
