"Favorite" CW songs are very much reliant on the mood I happen to be in at the moment. I love the tune of "Bonnie Blue Flag," but if I'm feeling peckish, the lyrics irritate me. I'm moved by the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," but if I'm feeling peckish, the lyrics come off as jingoism. Still, it's a bit difficult to resist, "In the beauty of the lilies, Christ was born across the sea." Especially when sung by the Norman Luboff Choir, or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I'll toss a vote in here for something many of you have never heard of: The St. Olaf College Choir. A benchmark all others have to live up to.
