Feist – Lo, How A Rose E’re Blooming (German Christmas Carol – 16th century)
Es ist ein Ros’ enstprungen – Lo, How a Rose E’re Blooming
I learnt the German traditional song “Es ist ein Ros’ entsprungen” when I sang in the church choir long time ago. Michael Prätorius composed it in the late 16th century. It is unknown who wrote the lyrics.

I love Christmas Carols but I never loved this one…until yesterday, when I first listened to Leslie Feist’s version:
Her version’s just brilliant, very simple, clear, classy, and beautiful. The style slightly reminds me of “The Park”.
