Season's Greetings from Perry Como ~ 1959
 
The First NoŽl ~ 1959 Version
 
The First NoŽl! the Angels did say,
Was to certain poor Shepherds,
In fields as they lay;
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep,
On a cold winterís night, that was so deep!
NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl!
Born is the King of Israel!
 
The Shepherds hurry to the manger, fall on their knees before the baby, and they worship him! For He is Christ the Lord!
 
Performed by The Ray Charles Singers
 
Adapted by John A. Richards
with musical arrangements by Mitchell Ayres
Narration with Christmas carols:
O Little Town of Bethlehem;
Come, Come, Come to the Manger; The First NoŽl;
O Come All Ye Faithful;
We Three Kings of Orient Are; Silent Night
