Track 7 from Below The Salt
Length: 00:02:26
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Steeleye Span were one of the British folk rock bands that grew in popularity along with Fairport Convention back in the early 70's. In Britain much is made of the Christmas number one single, and this was one of the more unexpected ones. It is sung accapella and in Latin. Actually it has always moved me quite a bit. "Gaudete Christos est natus. Ex Maria virginae,gaudete"
