    I have an old video of my school group doing the song, but I can't remember the name of it, so I typed up the lyrics by what I saw...


    Lyrics

    Please help! I really want to listen to it again (without finding that video :s)

    Thanks!

    I think I can come up with the tune for it, but I can't remember the name for the life of me. Sorry! [​IMG]

    That's how I feel too! [​IMG]

    Also, the music to the song is almost 100% Acoustic Guitar, not a medley of instruments...

    I might be able to get it up to YouTube if I can get my contraption running to get the VHS encoded on my laptop...

    Well, got the stream from the VCR, but wound up with a 12GB file (WTF?)

    I'm converting it to MPEG and will upload it to YT when done.

    its called "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear.
    They're all carols because they're the real christmas songs about Jesus's birth.

    This probably isnt it at all, but it wont let me see that video you posted, Also this song doesnt have the same lyrics you posted, and that thing gloria in excelsis deo is probably the right thing, but i searched a bunch of videos and listened to them with the lyrics that you posted in another window, alot of the videos dont sound like that at all, so i dont think its Gloria in excelsis deo,
    This is probably not it though, but please just listen to it.



    Edit: the video wont show for me so im guessing it isnt showing for you guys so here is the link instead

    I think when a number of songs are mixed together like this they're referred to as a "medley"
    That word will most likely be in the title.

    By the way: fixed your video, AndroidDem0man

    Nope, that's a line from the Latin version of "Oh come all ye faithful".

    Are you sure this isn't just something your school made up by frankensteining a few carols together? (which may explain why you're having some trouble finding it [​IMG] )

    its probably just a custom mashup and not an actual song as mentioned above

    Tried a few of those programs... They don't work for this - they look for specific audio frequency matches between the song it's listening to and its database, so they don't work on musicals, even if they have the original vocals...

    they can only match it if the original artist (if it is even in their db) is singing it

    Speaking of programs, use shazam if you have an itouch or iphone, it can find any song.
