'Tisn't intuitive for the power of organs at Christmas, yet after our local diocesan high school won a local radio station carol singing contest
with the BingCrosby-crooner "Do you hear what I hear?" I discovered an interesting link between the French emigre composer of that piece and the great Messiaen - he had studied under him in Paris!

Interesting. I've always like that song. It's one of the carols my rudimentary guitar knowledge allows me to play.
