Monday Music: O Come, Emmanuel

The beautiful and ancient Advent hymn, "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," first known in Latin as  "Veni, veni, Emmanuel" and translated into English in the mid-19th century, it has traditionally been sung on Sundays of Advent as we await the promise of Christmas. The text is based on Isaiah 7:14 that God will give his people a sign that will be called Immanuel, which means, "God with us."   This beautiful instrumental version features The Piano Guys on cello and piano.
