Christmas at the Vatican.

Music In 2001, the Vatican had a Christmas concert which was televised. The IMdb page with partial cast list is here. Notable performers include Byan Adams, Tom Jones, Sarah Brightman, Shola Ama, The Manhattan Transfer, Cleopatra (Comin' Atcha!) and Jewel (Kilcher). I've always been curious about what it might sound like, because it sounded like it could be one the most oddball, if festive, musical events ever. Oh look, someone's uploaded it to Spotify:

I was right. It's the beginning of June and I'm now broody for all things Christmas. The Jewel track's especially fun for all the giggling in the middle.

A YouTube uploader suggests this is from the same year. It's an unlikely cross-genre collaboration between The Cranberries and Westlife:

Happy Christmas. You're welcome.
