OK, so where and when will you sing for me? :P


there and then. which is a very generic place and time. :lol:

but seriously, when people say cantique de noel they refer to the song O Holy Night in english right? so although it sounds generic its a proper title cos it's clear which particular song it means. or can i call eg Little Drummer Boy 'cantique de noel' as well?

micknlea, you're right. it's funny. i'm still stumped on 19. happy men... ahhhh the agony of not knowing.... :x

OMG, Saint, tell me it's not true...

19 and 20 CAN'T be the same song??? just that 19 is the old english version with 'ye' instead of 'you'?

no no no, that would be too cruel...

Hee hee...just so you don't feel alone WIMH...the one that had me stumped was 20! Obviously neither of us could believe he would do that.

I think Saint is a very brave man coming here after doing that to us! :wink:
