Ghorpm: Bóg się rodzi (God is born)
is considered to be the most important Polish Christmas carol ever. With non-trivial lyrics, high quality structure and good but easy to learn music. At one point it was even considered as a candidate for a national anthem. It sounds great with full orchestra
, folk version
or even pop version
. So it can be both, very official but also sang at the family gatherings. I should also mention that it is included in Civilization V
as a theme of Polish side.
Thank you for the song and the interesting read with several links. You are definitely in.
Also thank you everybody else who participated so far and helps to share the Christmas spirit by changing the avatar or posting Christmas related things!
