Do You Hear What I Hear
A Christmas Carol for Peace
December 17, 2015.
Today we would like to present you a song in its original version from 1962: Do You Hear What I hear, sung by the Harry Simeone Chorale.
The well-known Christmas Carol is written by Noël Regney and Gloria Shayne Baker and is originally intended as plea for peace during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Only with the interpretation of the Harry Simeone Chorale during the Christmas season the song achieved success. Hundreds of singers covered the song, including Bing Crosby.
